So, here it is almost May, gadzooks, the year just began and it almost half over, okay maybe that is a stretch, it just makes me wonder where the time goes. One way to slow down and enjoy the day is to go to the Mad Hatter Tea Party on Saturday, April 30th at 12 noon in the Native Daughters Hall. Luncheon, desserts, raffle prizes and funny hats. Donation is $10 at the door.
Saturday evening is the Grand Opening for the St Charles Saloon and new owner Steve Sharp, come down, say hello and have fun, if you don’t drink the St Charles serves great Shirley Temples and sodas… the history of the St Charles in Downieville is it’s fun for all, beginning at 4 p.m. Burgers & Hotdogs (you can bring a side dish if you want) live music with the Dyin Breed, friends, pool, food, watching the game and just chatting with friends, of course you do have to be 21 yoa. Call 289-3237 if you need more info…or see St Charles on Facebook. See you there.
