The Southern Mono Historical Society (SMHS) would like to thank our small, but mighty crew of faithful helpers in setting up, decorating, serving food, cleaning up and tearing down of our summer events so far this season at the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin.

We couldn’t have done it without all of you! For our 17 th Annual Country Western Dance & BBQ which took place on June 27th , our only major fundraiser of the summer, we thank the following: four of the LDS Elders, Jim Beaver, Russ and Miss Lilly Ferguson, Sharon & Bob Cox caterers, bartender Steve Wetherwax, line dancing instructor and birthday girl Tina Sauser, Connor Craig, Nikki Goodwin, The Rafters for ice, Mammoth Museum Curator Mark Davis and members of our Board of Directors; Robert & Sue Joki, Bill & Chris Sauser, Jon Goodwin, Dinah Frincke-Craig, Dave Harvey and Barbara Richter.

Also a shout out of thanks to the Lions Club members who stayed after their function the following day to help us tear down the rest of our equipment. A big thank you to all the attendees who braved the monsoonal winds to attend our fun event.

We appreciated our new and renewing members as well. The museum couldn’t exist without all this support!

Save the date for our next community event at the Hayden Cabin on Saturday, August 22nd , Old Timers’ Day BBQ and annual general membership meeting.

The Hayden Cabin/Mammoth Museum at 5489 Sherwin Creek Road is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. through September. Admission is free, however we gratefully accept donations, sponsorships and memberships.
