At the core of every copper penny is bronze. Bronze tools began replacing stone in 4000BC and contemporary American sculptor Frederic Remington is famous for his bronze horse and rider pieces. Our hard-working Bronze Sponsors each reflect the lasting quality of this precious metal.
Accounting Plus is always the first to sign up as a 49er Festival sponsor and to roll up sleeves to help stuff and sell Chili Tasting Kits on Festival Day, and we’re grateful! Thank you, Cathy.
Welcome Blue Zones Project of Tuolumne County to the 49er Festival sponsorship roster! Blue Zones Project is a community-wide, evidence-based approach to improve health and well-being in making healthier choices easier for everyone. With activities like Moai (pronounced Mo-Eye) Walking Groups and the Walking School Bus, which enables groups of children to walk to school under the supervision of two or more adults, Blue Zones Project works within the Tuolumne County community to create an even better place to live, learn, work, play and worship. Check out their booth at the Festival.
The Inn at Sugar Pine Ranch is another historic property from the Gold Rush days. The farmhouse, built in the late 1800s and with its 1903 two-story addition, once headquartered the Yosemite Power Company. Cottages were first added in the 1940s and 50s and were modernized in 1996. A motor court was built in the 1950s, now called the Uptown Cottages.
The Inn at Sugar Pine Ranch, a new member of the Yosemite Chamber of Commerce, is nestled on 62 forested acres just 22 miles from the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite.
Sister property Yosemite Westgate Lodge boasts luxuriously appointed, newly remodeled and extremely spacious rooms. Most rooms have two queen-size beds, making them ideal for families or groups. The Yosemite Westgate Lodge is a 100% Non-Smoking facility with a seasonal swimming pool, spa, playground, laundry facilities, and an adjacent restaurant, Lucky Buck Cafe, also a member of the Yosemite Chamber.
Who isn’t excited that Groveland now has a resident tattoo artist? JD Tattoo Studios is up and inking some beautiful body art. New chamber member Dean Kirk jumped at the chance to sponsor the Festival, donating a $100 gift certificate as a Silent Auction item. Thanks for being here. We’ll look forward to seeing your artwork on display on our locals’ arms, legs, and other body parts.
