Activities To Enjoy With the Butte County Historical Society
November Program and General
The November Program and General Meeting will commence with the election of BCHS officers for 2014. The program honors the centennial of the Butte County Library with Nancy Brower, retired Butte County Library Director, relating the story of how a group of dedicated and energetic women built a thriving library system from scratch. Butte County's own Ida Reagan was instrumental in this process. Refreshments will be served.
Annual Christmas (for BCHS members)
The Holiday Brunch has been so successful the past two years that we hope it becomes an annual event. All BCHS members are invited to join us again this year on Saturday, December 14 from 11 am until 1 pm at the Ehmann Home for this year's Holiday Brunch. We will be installing our new officers and board members and thanking our hard working volunteers. The BCHS will be providing numerous delicious brunch items for your enjoyment so you only need to bring yourself.
We do ask that you RSVP to let us know you plan to attend so we can be sure to prepare enough food. Please call 530-533-9418. Leaving a message is fine, but be sure to tell us how many will be attending.
There will be an Open House at the Ehmann Home from 5 pm until 8 pm that evening. This coincides with the Oroville downtown Parade of Lights. And remember, there are many lovely items for sale at the Ehmann Home Gift Shop for those of you who may need to do some Holiday Shopping.
Visit the BCHS Museum and Museum Store
Looking for that perfect gift for a history buff? Drop by our Museum and Museum Store. After a captivating walk through Butte County history at the Museum, take a few moments to fill your gift list with some of wonderful items in our newly reorganized and restocked Museum Store. Our volunteers have found many local products that will delight your family and friends. Also, be sure to look at selection of excellent books about Butte County's fascinating history. Here is just a sample of some of the current books available.
Among the many local products made in Butte County, there are new additions from Painted Sky, a company based in Gridley that makes soaps, lotions and heel & elbow cream all from goat's milk. Mooney Farms, based at the Chico Airport, has wonderful culinary products that feature sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke pasta sauce and pesto. This Butte County company also has wonderful olive oil and beautiful gift baskets! These are just the tip of the iceberg of local products, books on local history, archival storage boxes and folders now available.
