The GraNeva A’s

We have already had an active spring of tours! And we will to continue through the summer.

In April we went to the Folsom Powerhouse, had a “ladies learn to drive day” (a great success) and a wonderful tour of Eventful Acres and its tractor collection plus tractor games, lunch at Francis Lake and wine tasting at Lucero! So far in May we have participated in the FAST Hill climb, The Railroad Museum Anniversary and coming up is Mother’s Day brunch at the Elks Club in Nevada City and the Penn Valley Rodeo and Parade. We are also very pleased to welcome three new families to our club.

Our next meeting is Thursday May 23 at Penny’s Diner. For more information, email Denia
