The heart of the Gold Country is once again to be the setting for
the Annual ’49er Days Celebration March 3-5, 2017.
Throughout the weekend the Holiday Inn
will be the center of the activities.
Holiday Inn Express (Grass Valley)
121 Bank St, Grass Valley, CA 95945
Friday, March 3:
Festivities begin with a hospitality room “Meet and Greet” in the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Grass Valley.
Saturday March 4th:
Starts with a complimentary hot breakfast bar. Then it’s off to see the local sites and attractions. For the Native Sons there is a Grand Officer initiation beginning at 10 a.m. in the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building auditorium.
For the ladies there will possibly be a historical tour or simply downtown Grass Valley touring. The downtown area is a short walking distance from the Holiday Inn.
Following the initiation there will be luncheon in the Veterans Building Dining Room with a fare of pasties and salad. The lounge will be open for no-host liquid refreshment (no doubt Early Times will be included).
At 2:30 there’ll be a Grand Officer dedication with a yet-to-be-determined site—but with the vast historical resources in western Nevada County finding one shouldn’t be a problem.
At 6:00 the bar opens in the lounge at the Veterans Memorial Building. Dinner will be served at 7:00 in the dining room with a menu featuring barbecued pork, chicken or a vegetable plate, oven roasted potatoes and Caesar salad.
During the evening there’ll be a raffle, entertainment and recognition of visiting dignitaries—not necessarily in that order.
Sunday March 5th;
“Get Away Day” will start at 8 a.m. with complementary beverages in Hydraulic Parlor’s hospitality room. World-famous gin fizzes will be in the mix.
