The Rotary Club of Kelseyville Sunrise led by Jerry Marquis, has been working on a native plant garden at the Ely Stage Stop. Many plants have been delivered and placed. Planting will continue through the spring when dormant plants will be delivered. They will be planting 130 plants in all.
The planters below are Marie Beery, Jerry Marquis, and Pam Shine Duncan.
A reminder that this coming Sunday, February 3, is the monthly Fiddlers’ Jam in the Barn. The gates open at 11am with the Fiddlers starting their happy music from 12 noon to 2pm. Following the fairly new tradition, there will be food and beverages available for sale. The Fiddlers play….rain or shine. Last month the sound of the rain on the tin roof was magical.
The February Raffle Basket is titled Hearts and Flowers, just perfect for Valentine’s Day. Docent Suzanne uses her decorative skill to fill the basket with goodies which will include wine, candy, and fresh flowers from Flowers by Traci in Kelseyville. An added bonus is a Gift Certificate from Woody’s, also from Kelseyville. The Ely Docents are most grateful to these businesses who support the venue projects.
On Saturday, February 23rd, the Ely Docents are excited to present the first History Speakers for 2019.
Kelseyville resident Bob Prather and Cobb resident Darlene Hecomovich will tell stories of their pioneer families’ involvement in the Cobb Mountain resorts of the 1940’s. Bob’s family was involved with Adams Springs and Loch Lomond. Darlene’s family was involved with Seigler Springs and Hobergs. Come and hear their stories and learn more of Lake County’s history of the glory days gone by.
Start your new year with happy music at the Ely Stage Stop & Country Museum. The monthly Fiddlers’ Jam will be back for another year, on Sunday, January 6th, bringing us their familiar, toe tapping tunes. The gates of the museum open at 11:00am with the Chili and Chips luncheon meal ready to be served. Hot and cold beverages and pies by the slice will also be available. The Fiddlers play from 12-2pm. Come early or stay later until 3pm to enjoy the antique farm equipment and the displays at the warm house.
Be sure to see this month’s Raffle Basket which has a Pasta theme. Flowers by Traci, located in the A+H General Store in Kelseyville, will also offer a floral bouquet for raffle. The funds from these raffles help towards ongoing projects at the Ely.
The Ely Stage Stop & Country Museum is located at 9921 Soda Bay Road, between Kit’s Corner on Hwy 29 and the Riviera Shopping Center. Look for the Museum Flag!
