Calling all WILD 'N' WOOLY, Dyed-in-the-Wool, Funtastic for the Whole Family, Crazy Creative Crew Members!!

Our beloved Days of Living History is a mere 5 weeks away, and it's time to gather our posse, load up the wagons, and put on the slap-dandiest hands-on weekend of family fun on the Ridge! And YOU can be a great big part of this old-fashioned small town fun by volunteering some time, donating some creative goods, or cooking up a storm for the chow line!

Got some new ideas??! We'd LOVE it! Take a look at the attached 2018 Days of Living History Volunteer Form. Fill it out, print it, and bring it on in to the first planning meeting, next Wednesday, August 8, at 6:00 p.m. here at the Gold Nugget Museum, 502 Pearson Road in beautiful Paradise, California. Or feel free to email the filled out form to
