Hope Valley setting for workday, concert
June 7, 2018
The Friends of Hope Valley will spend the weekend of June 9-10 working and celebrating one of the main jewels in Alpine County's tiara.
The group's annual workday starts 9 a.m. June 9 with participants meeting at Pickett's Junction in Hope Valley.
Projects include watershed habitat improvement, highway clean up and fence work. Bring work gloves, shovels, sunblock, hats and a snack. Projects will be completed by 11:30, allowing time to join the celebrations at Woodfords' Mad Dog Café where a trio of authors will be signing local history books.
The newly opened Cafe will be providing free hors-d'oeuvres, coffee, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Friends of Hope Valley membership meeting will be at the Café following the celebration.
The Back Forty Bluegrass band will return for a Friends of Hope Valley benefit concert 1-4 p.m. June 10 at Sorensen's Resort located on Highway 88 in Hope Valley, near Picketts Junction.
