On Monday, October 6, the monthly meeting of the Mono Basin Historical Society will be a celebration of Augie Hess’s 100th birthday, as the Mono Basin elder will reach the century mark later in the month.  At 5:30, the Historical Society’s  business meeting will begin at the Lee Vining Community Center, on Mattly Avenue.  At 6:30, the birthday party begins with a potluck dinner.

Augie’s newly published autobiographical book, The Kid from Mono Mills: Augie’s Century,  will be available for purchase and signing, and there will be a slideshow about his amazing life.  Please come and honor this landmark birthday occasion of a remarkable man.

Augie has asked that there be no presents, but encourages donations to the Mono Basin Historical Society as an alternative.
All are welcome.
