A Life Celebrated. Proclamations, Auction, Friends, Family and a Film in Honor of Barden Stevenot

Murphys, CA...More than 200 people gathered to celebrate the life of Barden Stevenot on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at the Old School House in Murphys. Stevenot’s wife, Annie, was presented with two proclamations honoring his contributions to the county. The Calaveras Board of Supervisors signed one and the other was written, signed and presented by the mayor of Angel’s Camp, Amanda Folendorf. “Barden was influential in the community and made improvements that greatly benefitted the City. His legacy will be felt for generations to come,” Folendorf read at the event.







The Calaveras County proclamation recorded many of Barden’s lifetime achievements that created jobs and brought commerce into the county. It is estimated that through Stevenot’s many business ventures, approximately 1,200 jobs were created locally. Stevenot was well known for the winery he started in 1973, which laid the groundwork for the county’s thriving wine business; however, he also ran several mine operations including Carson Hill and he was instrumental in developing both Kirkwood Ski Resort and Greenhorn Creek Golf Community.

The Angel’s Camp proclamation focused on his family’s history and impact on the county and more specifically the city.

Additionally, the organizers auctioned heirlooms and artifacts from the Stevenot family’s rich history in the area. Over $15,000 was raised to benefit the Barden Stevenot Scholarship Fund for local students. Many winery owners were in attendance, including John and David Oliveto, the current owners of the Stevenot label; they presented a $500 check to the scholarship fund.

A short film was screened at the Black Bart Theater featuring Barden as he chronicled his life and times in Calaveras County. The film was made by Martin Huberty, a distant relative of Barden’s and a well-known film producer.

The film will be made available on YouTube within a few weeks; both proclamations will be on display at local museums. Donations to the Barden Stevenot Scholarship can be sent to the Calaveras Community Foundation, PO Box 1436, Angel’s Camp, CA 95222

Supervisors honor the elite

Once again here's our supervisors wasting time on trivial things that are irrelevant to so many people in this County. Can't they come up with a better way to spend their time. A proclamation just to honor someone who had a lot of money and build a golf course. Whoopty Doo.

    Sounds like you're rather bitter. Is it the insignificant life you've lived, or are you
    just mad at anyone who has achieved success? I've never meet
    him, but it sure sounds like he's done a lot of good in his lifetime
    with the mining operations, Kirkwood Ski Resort and Greenhorn Creek. He sounds like he cared for his community and was a pretty good guy, not only that, look at all the broads that attended. He must of been hung like a mule.
    In a way I do agree with part of your statement, we all know just about anyone in politics will brown nose or butt lick anyone for a vote or to get their name recognized for something good. I mean just look at Hillary..... oh wait, what good has she done? Never-mind. (excuse me for borrowing this) "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! LYING, CHEATING, CROOKED HILLARY!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"
