Choir to attend historical society dinner

The Nevada County Historical Society will celebrate its 50th annual dinner in style at Miners Foundry Cultural Center Sunday.

After returning from a trip to Cornwall, England, on Tuesday, members of the 40-voice Grass Valley Male Voice Choir will talk briefly about their experiences overseas and perform.

“The choir really represents the essence of much of the history of Nevada County,” said Tony Smeaton, director of the historical society.

Receiving Citizen of the Year awards will be Cathy Wilcox Barnes, Nevada City’s city clerk, and Beryl Robinson, Nevada City’s city manager.

A silent auction and no-host bar starts at 3 p.m., followed by the Citizen of the Year awards at 4 p.m. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. and the male voice choir performs at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is $25 and includes steak, chicken or vegetarian entree, salad, rolls, beverage and dessert.

Tickets are at the Firehouse No. 1 Museum, the Grass Valley Nevada County Chamber of Commerce, Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and at the door. Checks made payable to NCHS with your dinner preference can be mailed to the Firehouse No. 1 Museum at 214 Main St., Nevada City 95959.

The Miners Foundry Cultural Center is at 325 Spring St. in Nevada City.
