Annual Museum Barbeque Features Friends, Food, Music and Fun

The Friends of the Eastern California Museum will host its annual deep-pit barbeque and party on Saturday, May 10, starting at 4 p.m., at the museum in Independence. The public is cordially invited to enjoy the afternoon of good food, good music and historic family fun.

The event will feature live music, a deep-pit barbeque beef dinner with all the trimmings, beverages, and Kathy White’s famous home made cookies. With any luck, there will be an ample supply of cookies so cookie fans can buy a dozen (or two) to take home and enjoy. A vegetarian meal option will also be available.

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 deep pit beef entrée, the meal includes coleslaw, garlic bread, homemade hot sauce, beans, and lemonade or water (beer and wine is extra).

The annual barbeque 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.

“The support of the Friends has allowed the Museum to create popular and attractive exhibits, host guest speakers and events, and undertake other projects that enhance all aspects of the Museum’s operation,” said Museum Director Jon Klusmire.

The Friends annual barbeque is open to the public and will be held on the grounds of the Eastern California Museum, 155 N. Grant St., three blocks west of the historic Inyo County Courthouse in Independence. For more information, call 760-878-0258 or visit www.fecm.org.

    From Land of Little Rain,
    Mary Austin
    You are not to suppose that they do not keep the Fourth,
    Washington’s Birthday, and Thanksgiving at the town of the grape
    vines. These make excellent occasions for quitting work and
    dancing, but the Sixteenth is the holiday of the heart. On
    Memorial Day the graves have garlands and new pictures of the
    saints tacked to the headboards. There is great virtue in an
    Ave said in the Camp of the Saints. I like that name which
    the Spanish speaking people give to the garden of the dead,
    Campo Santo, as if it might be some bed of healing from
    which blind souls and sinners rise up whole and praising God.
    Sometimes the speech of simple folk hints at truth the
    understanding does not reach. I am persuaded only a complex soul
    can get any good of a plain religion. Your earthborn is a poet and
    a symbolist. We breed in an environment of asphalt pavements a
    body of people whose creeds are chiefly restrictions against other
    people’s way of life, and have kitchens and latrines under the same
    roof that houses their God. Such as these go to church to be
    edified, but at Las Uvas they go for pure worship and to entreat
    their God. The logical conclusion of the faith that every good
    gift cometh from God is the open hand and the finer courtesy. The
    meal done without buys a candle for the neighbor’s dead
    child. You do foolishly to suppose that the candle does no good.
