Sutter's Fort "Hands on History" Event this Saturday!

In the winter of 1846-1847, wagon travel across the Sierra Nevada was a dangerous proposition and more than 80 emigrants became trapped in the Sierra snow.  Of course we know them as the Donner Party, but the travelers included individuals and many different families. Did you know that the snowbound emigrants lived in two separate camps almost five miles apart? Sutter’s Fort was their destination and became their only hope of survival. 

Emeritus Senior Living “Free Rent” Talent Contest Winner Announced

Non-profit organization 3in4 Association, its spokesperson Dr. Marion Somers, and Emeritus Senior Living announced the winner of its national senior talent competition on Friday, Nov. 9 – who promptly donated his prize to a neighbor in need.

A self-taught musician who lost his eyesight as a teenager and has played with Little Richard, Tina Turner and Etta James, Nat wanted to share his prize with someone truly deserving, so he donated it to a  local senior with little family and few belongings.  View Nat’s performance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMktzJU5K00
