Local musical favorite Sandy and the High Country will be on hand to provide casual county music for the event.

The cost for the feast and fun is $12 for adults and $8 for youngsters and seniors. Besides the chicken entrée, the meal includes coleslaw, garlic bread, beans and lemonade or water (beer and wine is extra). A vegetarian meal will also be available.

The annual picnic is a fundraiser for the non-profit Friends of the Eastern California Museum, so additional donations are welcome and appreciated. The Friends group supports the Eastern California Museum through generous donations of time, money, ideas and energy.
