06/30/2017 - Native Daughters YARD SALE This Weekend

About the Native Daughters of the Golden West...

Founding of the Order of Native Daughters of the Golden West
By Grand Historian Bertha A. Briggs, Past Grand President 1953

The historic mining city of Jackson, Amador County, has the honor of being the birthplace of the Order of Native Daughters of the Golden West.

Pursuant to a call issued by Lilly O. Reichling, about twenty young women met in Pioneer Hall on September 11, 1886. Miss Reichling explained that the object of the meeting was to form an Order of California-born women to be known as the Native Daughters of the Golden West.

The Order was organized in Pioneer Hall, at a meeting held on September 25, 1886, when, by request, Judge Curtis Lindley presided, Miss Lilly O. Reichling acting as Secretary.

Chosen for the first Parlor of the Order was the distinctive name of Ursula (meaning "The Bear" - suggestive of courage and strength).

Tina L. Kane was named as the first President, and the charter list closed after thirty days with a membership of thirty-three. Charter Officers were installed March 7, 1887.

The first emblem chosen was the spotted fawn, which, however, was discarded for the more impressive emblems of Minerva, the Oriflamme, Sheaves of Wheat, and the mystic letters P.D.F.A.

Founding principles adopted were Love of Home, Devotion to the Flag of our Country, Veneration of the Pioneers of California, and an Abiding Faith in the Existence of God.

Between the date of the organization of Ursula Parlor No.1 and June 1887, seventeen Parlors were instituted.

The first Grand Parlor was held in San Francisco in July 1887, with the seventeen Parlors instituted by Ursula No.1 represented by thirty-nine delegates. Tina L. Kane, President of the Mother Parlor, was elected as the first Grand President. Years later the special honor and title, Founder of the Order of Native Daughters of the Golden West, was conferred upon Lilly O. Reichling, later Mrs. Lilly O. Reichling Dyer.

Ursula Parlor No. 1 reserved the right to institute the Subordinate Parlors until that right was surrendered to the Grand Parlor in July 1887, when it met in San Francisco for its first session. At this time, Grand Parlor adopted its Constitution and selected a full corps of Grand Officers.

Murphys, CA...Join Milliaire for their July Patio Party! This is one of their most popular events of the year, so purchase your tickets NOW!





Milliaire Winery is a small family-owned winery founded by Liz and Steve Millier in 1983 in the cellar of their former home in Murphys CA. In 1990, the winery moved to an old Flying A gas station on Main Street in Murphys. The whole building was utilized for daily operations; barrels stacked in the repair bays, wine tanks in the backyard, bottling in the front yard and the tasting room in the office. There were jokes about what was in "those tanks" and a friend of the Milliers' dubbed it the "Roadside Chateau". Following their dreams of making premium wines from the Sierra Foothills, today Milliaire Winery has expanded and occupies over an 8,000 square foot winery with a dedicated barrel room and modern crush pad facility. The Milliaire Winery tasting room still resides in the old "Roadside Chateau" at 276 Main Street. Learn more about how Liz and Steve met!

The Winemaker

In 1975, Steve got his first winemaking job at David Bruce Winery in Santa Cruz after graduating from Fresno State with a degree in enology with an emphasis in viticulture. He knows the science and art of winemaking and grape growing from the ground up. After over 40 harvests, Steve is still exploring, learning and, most importantly, having fun in the winery. He is part alchemist, part artist and part farmer. The rest of us are fortunate to enjoy both his company and the fruit of his life's work - great bottles of wine! Read more about Steve's long winemaking career.

Vallecito, CA...For those who like their half marathons with plenty of scenery, AND elevation (not to mention some outstanding wine tasting afterwards), be sure to put Sunday July 2 down on your calendar for the 30th annual Hernia Hill Half Marathon at Twisted Oak Winery. Produced by On Your Mark Events, this exciting race, as well as its popular post-race lunch, has become a mid Sierra area Fourth of July holiday weekend tradition—for both the locals and those who travel in from throughout California and Nevada.   Along with the half marathon, the “Hernia Hill” also offers a 10K Run and 5K Run/Walk.


The Hernia Hill Half Marathon will be headquartered at the Twisted Oak Winery, in Vallecito (located between Angels Camp and Murphys, on Highway 4). The three courses feature a combination of hilly paved surfaces and packed gravel roads, which offer the beautiful views of the crest of the Sierra and nearby vineyards. All three courses finish up dashing through the infamous Twisted Oak “Cardiac Cave” (the winery’s barrel-aging cave), just steps away from the finish line.

 

The Courses:
All distances are beautifully scenic with hills and finish with a "dash" through the 'Wine Cave'.
5K - Has one fun hill prior to the finish line
10K - Includes a dash up the finishing hill twice, so you get the punishment twice.
Half Marathon - Utilizes Red Hill Road with a long and very pretty run through the California Hill...beautiful and golden at this time of year.

 

The Hernia Hill Half Marathon was started by the late Ernie Klann, of Arnold, CA, in 1988,” says Mark Aiton, co-principal of On Your Mark Events. “We are proud to have been associated with Ernie, and proud to continue his race.” The Ernie Klann Half Marathon trophies will be given to the overall male and female Half Marathon winners.

 

Along with the Ernie Klann Trophies given to top Half Marathon male and female winners, medals will awarded to the top three male and female ½ marathon finishers, in each age group, as well as the Half Marathon Clydesdale division (men over 185 lbs., women over 150 lbs. Top male and female 5K and 10K finishers, in their age groups, will be given medals as well.

 

Participants will receive refreshments, post-race lunch, commemorative T-shirt, awards, and, raffle ticket.

 

Entry fee for the Half Marathon is: $50.00 advance and $55.00 race day, while the 5K and 10K races are $35.00 advance and $40.00 race day. The Half Marathon Relay (team of four) is $30.00 pre-registered (each), and $35.00 on race-day (each). (The post-race lunch is available to non-runners at $10.00 per person, $7.00 per non-participant child.)

 

Twisted Oak Winery is located at 4280 Red Hill Road, in Vallecito, just off Highway 4 (between the towns of Angels Camp and Murphys. The Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K races will start at 8:00 a.m. Event check-in and registration commences at 6:30 a.m., with the awards lunch following, at 10:30 a.m.

06/24/2017 - The 2017 Summer Hill Top Concert Series at Brice Station Continues Tonight With Bob Eisenman Jazz Tr
Murphys, CA...June 24, 2017 - Doors open at 5:30pm & Music 7:00PM - 10:00PM with Bob Eisenman Jazz Trio & Now You Hazz Jazz. About The Bob Eisenman Trio... “With a wide range of jazz styles including Jazz Standards, Straight Ahead Jazz, Blues, Ballads, and Latin Jazz, the trio performs tunes from beautiful ballads to grooving up-tempo swingers including songs from the great American song book, jazz classics and lesser known jazz greats. “The wonderful thing about jazz”, says multi-saxophonist and leader Bob Eisenman, “is that its expressive, inventive and emotive music. As a trio plus vocalist, we’re making a body of great jazz music intimate and accessible. We hope that our music touches our audience at an emotional level as well as being enjoyable to listen to.” – From the Bob Eisenman Jazz Trio Facebook Page



“From Broadway to Birdland, during a very fertile era when more than 700 big bands were delivering their music around the USA on any one night, Copeland fine-tuned his talents. And with his genius for harmony and his arrangements––custom made for particular performers––he earned the respect of many of the top jazz players and singers of his time,… Henry Mancini, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Horace Silver.

As well as winning a Grammy for The Alan Copeland Singers with his arrangement of “Mission Impossible/Norwegian Wood.” From the early 50’s on, when the silver screen was reconfigured for TV in our living rooms, Copeland was a vital source of creativity for a variety of live programs which all needed new musical scores around the clock….

Now, with a musical career spanning seven decades, Alan “Weaver” Copeland’s natural gifts continue to grow. With his current jazz quartet you can experience the spontaneous process of jazz as you hear familiar songs re-emerging as fresh and viable possibilities.

Moment by moment, Jazz mimics a living system, a positive feedback loop of listening and music-making in real time which results in that thing called Swing. And although you might refrain from dancing on your feet, you will nevertheless dance in your heart because…Now You Hazz Jazz.” – From the Now You Hazz Jazz Website
