Stonyford Museum Director, Joyce Bond, learned that Premier Mushrooms of Colusa was interested in donating a $250 gift to Stonyford for a worthwhile community project. Joyce applied and the museum was granted the money. The museum’s board of directors chose a new bulletin board as the project. The old bulletin board that was approximately 40 years old was coming apart: the protective glass covering was gone and papers that were posted blew in the wind. A new board was much needed.
Gary Evans, District IV Supervisor, agreed to take on the task of helping get the job done. He donated his labor and some extra cash to complete the project, with a good group of local folks to assist, including David Brandenberger, Harry “Pete” Petersen, Tim and Barbara Leach, and Karl Rudolph.
Jessie Diaz and Don Jones, Jr. removed the old bulletin board.
The new bulletin board is constructed of metal and is designed to last a long time. It has three glass doors, two of which have a simple latch that allows town people to post their bulletins. The third glass door has a key lock and is used to post important documents that have long-term interest to the community. The new board is located on Market Street between the post office and the museum.
The Stonyford Museum wants to thank Premier Mushrooms for their donation and all of the workers who donated their time and money to make this new bulletin board a reality.
