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.
“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 picnic 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.
