Spring concert scheduled

The Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee has scheduled the second spring concert featuring the Carson Valley Pops Orchestra. The event will take place at 4 p.m. March 25 in the newly redecorated C.V.I.C. Hall at Minden, where the orchestra practices weekly.

Admission is $5 per person or $10 for a family. Proceeds will go toward funding the orchestra and the grand 150th anniversary celebration of the establishment of Mormon Station, which led to the settlement of Nevada.

Working together are local residents, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and representatives of Nevada State Parks System. Plans are under way for a grand historic celebration June 1, 2 and 3, which will be centered in Morman Station State Park in Genoa, Nev. Featured will be numerous historic characterizations and hands-on demonstrations, a pageant, music, dancing, costume ball, art and photo exhibit, picnic and a Sunday afternoon concert by the Carson Valley Pops Orchestra. The hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday with a pageant presentation at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free to most events. For more information call (775) 782-2486 or (775) 782-2893.

The gala celebration revenues will be donated to the Carson Valley Pops Orchestra, Boy Scouts of America and to establish a fund to acquire additional parking and expansion for Mormon Station State Park.
