^ That event was really fun, too. The music by local Bodie 601 Band was fantastic, bbq food and homemade fruit pies by Wildyrie Lodge were so yummy, the bar was loaded and the crowd was enthusiastic! Thanks to all our renewing members and new members. Without their support the Mammoth Museum could not operate.

Hope some of you can attend this fun event on Saturday, 9/23/17 from noon until 4:00. Unplug and listen to some tall tales and enjoy some sweet treats! It's the last event of the season before the Mammoth Museum closes at the end of the day, Sunday, 9/24/17 for the winter.

The Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin is happy to announce its 2nd Annual Mammoth Storytelling Festival on September 23, 2017 from noon until 4:00 p.m. The popularity of storytelling is increasing - with storytelling festivals springing up around the country. Building on the success of last year’s event, this year’s line-up at the museum’s Temple of Folly tent features even more storytellers and new “Tales of the Sierra.”

In today's wired world, it’s refreshing to spend an afternoon outside along the banks of Mammoth Creek listening to live performances of time-honored yarns and fresh stories. Tellers this year include Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless re-enacting the adventures of Nan Zischank, local author David Woodruff sharing “Tales Along El Camino Sierra” and professional actor James Harnagel playing Mark Twain in an excerpt from “Roughing It.” With views of the Sherwins and quaking aspen along the creek, The Mammoth Storytelling Festival is a delightful fall treat and perfect for all ages.

Tickets are $10 for adults/$5 for children (under 18) and will be available at the gate. Complimentary sweet treats will be served during the afternoon’s musical interlude. This will be the closing weekend for the Mammoth Museum, so it’s the last chance for visitors to enjoy the current museum exhibits before the Spring 2018 reopening. The Hayden Cabin is located at 5489 Sherwin Creek Road. Parking is limited at the museum, so guests are encouraged to enter on foot from the northwest by crossing the bridge over Mammoth Creek from the Town Loop Multi-Use trail at Mammoth Creek Park East. Come prepared for variable weather.

If you would like more information, please call 760 934-6918 or email lesley@mammothmuseum.org. Join the Mammoth Museum in celebrating fall colors and tall tales on September 23rd at the Mammoth Storytelling Festival!

9/19
In case folks are wondering what happened to our brand new event banner...the fierce winds we had the last two days and nights apparently ripped it away from its grommets and blew it to Fresno. We found the grommets and ties on the posts, but can't locate the errant banner! So now the Mammoth Oktoberfest banner is up. At least we had 24 hours of advertising!

Don't forget, our last event of the season is tomorrow from noon-4:00. Come hear tall tales about Mammoth's history at the 2nd Annual Mammoth Storytelling Festival at the Hayden Cabin. $10 at the gate. There will be live music and sweet treats served during intermission. (One of which will be my homemade Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip cookies I baked this afternoon...yum!)

Shameful plug for #GivingTuesday!

Dear Friends,

The Mammoth Museum is an unexpected delight, tucked away along the banks of Mammoth Creek. Its old log walls conjure visions of late night poker games, steaming apple pies coming out of the wood stove, and friends gathered around the big rock fireplace sharing tales of “the one that got away.”

Did you know the Museum is operated by the Southern Mono Historical Society (SMHS), a local non-profit 501(c)3) organization? For more than 25 years, we’ve provided docents, organized special events and maintained the buildings on-site. We catalog and store the historical collections and research the cultural history of our area.

You may have noticed some changes at the Mammoth Museum in the last few years. Our newly energized Board of Directors has created a series of exciting special events like Jazz by the Creek and the Mammoth Storytelling Festival. We introduced the “History Trolley” this summer, which features costumed history docents and musicians on the Lakes Basin trolley.

All this is only the beginning. The Southern Mono Historical Society has big plans for the future including:
• Creating an outdoor interpretive trail near the intersection of Highways 395 and 203
• Digitizing our audio/visual media and making it available online to the public Opening a year-round administrative office to tackle off-season projects and expand collections
• Finding a permanent home for the Warta cabin
• Expanding our partnerships with local schools and libraries
• Developing an intimate open-air performance venue

In order to realize these dreams, we need your financial support! People like you, who value our area’s rich history and want to experience it more deeply, can help build a future vision. We hope you’ll make a special donation to the Southern Mono Historical Society on Giving Tuesday (November 28) or at any time before the end of the year. You may send a check (payable to SMHS) to PO Box 65, Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546 or go to our website at http://www.mammothmuseum.org and click on the PayPal "Donate" button on any page.

We thank you for your generosity and wish you and your family a holiday season that’s one for the history books!

Sincerely,
Robert Joki - Board President, SMHS
