Nevada City has class

My husband and I are jazz musicians from Chico who have been travelling up to perform at Friar Tuck’s for the past three years. On the morning of the tragic fire, my girlfriend called me to tell me to turn on the news; Friar Tuck’s was on fire! My husband and I watched the television, horrified, as that historic building was enveloped in flames. Our thoughts went instantly to Greg and Rona and all of the wonderful folks who work at Tuck’s as well as the “locals” who have made us feel like such a part of the community. We knew just how devastating this fire would be for everyone in Nevada City and our hearts have been aching ever since.

Today, we received a check in the mail from the “Nevada City Fire Relief Fund.” What an incredible surprise, but yet a true statement of how much class Nevada City has. Nevada City is unique in its support for the arts and its artists and we are proud to be included in that group. Although we are “flatlanders,” Friar Tuck’s and Nevada City have welcomed us as part of the Nevada City family, and we are truly honored. We can’t thank all of the people who have donated to the Nevada City Fire Relief Fund enough. We truly feel blessed to be considered a part of this unique, wonderful town, and our hearts are with you.

Holly Taylor and Eric Peter
