Save the dates! We’ve two events on tap for the month of March. First off, in celebration of St. Ps day join us this Sunday afternoon for some craft’s O’ the Green and some Leprechaun Science (and you thought they only used magic ;-).
Then on Saturday, March 30th come join us and the Sierra Lions Club of Oakhurst for an Easter Egg Hunt and Barbecue! For more info check out the press release for the event below.
Wow – Fall’s finally really here (Monday’s cold storm front made that pretty clear) and the month of October is almost completely over (ghouls and ghosties come out next Wednesday – boy does time fly). So we thought it a good idea to have a little get together this Saturday, Oct 27th from 11am to 5pm for a little Halloween Fe
stival and Open House at the museum. The Central Sierra Woodcarvers will be there giving us some demonstrations in relief carving of pumpkins The Lions Club will be grillin’ some burgers and hotdogs and we’ll have a few arts and crafts available including Spooky Spin art. There is also planned to be some sweets along with the grilled stuff via a bake sale. Some come out and enjoy some nice, easy family friendly fun! Hope to see you there!
Quick note – we are planning on having some pumpkins available for a nominal fee but the quantities may be limited so please plan on B.Y.O.P. (Bring Your Own Pumpkin).
Hold the dates!

Please help us spread the word! Since we can’t rent a bi-plane and drop flyers all over the region (nor would we want to… but the plane ride we’d definitely be up for!) we’d greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out. A copy of the flyer for printing and posting can be found here: 8 1/2 x 11and 11 x 17Read More
