A LOT of new stuff happening at the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin this season!

As most of you know I'm the Secretary to the Board of Directors for the Southern Mono Historical Society (SMHS) who operate the museum. We've been very busy over the winter months. Here are some highlights of how our mostly new Board are catching us up with the 21st Century:

* Opening day, Saturday, May 28, 2016
* Awarded $1,300 in grant money from Mono County Tourism.
* Working on a grant to raise money toward the eventual relocation of the Sartori/Warta cabin (old cable company cabin on the SW corner of Main and Minaret across from Mammoth Brewing Co.) to the Hayden Cabin compound. (The Sartori/Warta cabin was gifted to the SMHS.)
* Booked six weddings and/or receptions, two tours, one service organization event and four special events.
* Updated our rack cards to include thumbnail photos of past events on the property and added text indicating it is available for rent for special occasions.
* Update our business cards adding our physical and website addresses.
* Participated in the Mammoth Lakes Event & Wedding Expo at the Westin for the first time ever which proved worthwhile for the networking opportunities.
* Recently joined the Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce, maintain our listing and post our events to their website.
* Upgraded our listing on the newly launched Mammoth Lakes Tourism website and post our events to their website.
* Purchased our own dance floor with sub-floor and porta-potty both of which will be available for rent.
* Planned, organized and implemented a fundraising Cajun/Creole dinner/jazz concert featuring Tom Rigney & Flambeau at the cabin on Sunday, 7/10. This jazz event will dovetail off The Village's free Mammoth Jazz event the previous Friday and Saturday. Our marketing and advertising will be paid for with the Mono County Tourism grant money received as mentioned above. See link for details below for ticket information.
* Added a PayPal option to our website for tickets to this event, plus membership dues and donations can now be made online as well.
* Will be accepting credit cards at our museum gift shop.
* Our website is being revamped by our webmistress to become mobile device friendly, however I still update most of the front-end content.
* I also continue to keep our Facebook page fresh weekly.
* Welcoming two new staff members/docents at the museum.
* New exhibits planned for the museum this season.

JAZZ IS BACK IN MAMMOTH!

Please join us on Sunday, July 10, 2016 for this special fundraising jazz event for the Southern Mono Historical Society featuring Tom Rigney & Flambeau! Tom Rigney has historically been the most well-attended performance at the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee, and we are all so excited they will be returning to Mammoth to perform. Tom is known around the world as one of the best violin artists in jazz, blues, Cajun and groove and the members of his band individually have so much talent in their own rights, this is a performance not to be missed. Tom Rigney and Flambeau have been featured on PBS and performed on cruises around the world.

This event will be an outdoor live concert under the stars in the most beautiful historic site in Mammoth Lakes, the Hayden Cabin. A three-course Cajun/Creole dinner will be served with live music. A cash bar and a wonderful new dance floor will be available for you to get your groove on.

Limited tickets are on sale now (so don’t miss out!) via PayPal on our website link http://www.mammothmuseum.org/cajun-night-by-the-creek

Gate will open at 4:00 p.m.
Dinner served 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. with live music
Tom Rigney & Flambeau concert 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.

There will be shuttle service between parking areas and the venue. Details will be provided with ticket purchase.

We have partnered with the Mammoth Jazz Fest at The Village at Mammoth on Friday and Saturday, July 8th and July 9th, giving jazz enthusiasts a full weekend on wonderful music. More information about what will be happening up at The Village is on the website: http://www.mammothjazzweekend.org/

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Marianne O’Connor at (760) 934-6299 or mo@marianneoconnor.com for details.

Your support of the Southern Mono Historical Society is appreciated!

Tickets are beginning to be sold for Cajun Night by the Creek...get yours soon!

New exhibit up all about Horace Albright, famous American conservationist who spent a great deal of time in his earlier years in Mammoth Lakes. Some new (old) artifacts put out, too. Cleaning and sprucing up continues!

Yesterday at the museum I gave a little trim to a big Currant bush near the cabin. Another new exhibit is up. Three days to go before we open!

5/28/16 Opening Day! Already a nice crowd at the museum when I stopped by around 10:30 to deliver a box of trash bags. Our two new Docents were busy greeting and assisting museum guests, including quite a few anglers!

Later in the rainy afternoon I brought Rather Be Skiing and LVTOSKI down to the museum for a tour. It was their first time to the museum and they loved it!

Thank you, Freerider...hope you will visit sometime this summer.

We had two groups of 3rd graders at the museum today and our Docents gave tours on the outside and inside. The kids were cute and really seemed to enjoy it. Two more groups of kids coming for tours next Monday, too. Then a special event at the cabin next Thursday evening then a local couple's wedding Friday evening.

Mammoth Creek running high and wildflowers blooming nearby.

Lots of spring flowers blooming around the Hayden Cabin! Mammoth Creek overflowing its banks due to high runoff. Thanks to the TOML for coming to berm up a section that was flooding the lawn prior to the property hosting a wedding later today!

For the first time ever the Southern Mono Historical Society is going to have an entry in this year's parade! Look for me riding shotgun in our President's restored Triumph towing this historic Mammoth City row boat with Ol' Charlie in it. (Did you know there used to be row boat races in the lakes in the Lakes Basin many years ago? - this fine boat was one of them and was recently donated to the Mammoth Museum!).
