OAKHURST — The newly reorganized Board of Directors in charge of Fresno Flats Historical Park wants community members and visitors alike to know they are open from dawn to dusk daily, and are now offering newly reduced rates at very competitive prices with newly reduced fees.
In some cases, the cost for rental of facilities for parties, weddings, graduation celebrations, meetings and special events have been cut in half. New rates are in place for nonprofit organizations, as well, so whether you’ve negotiated with the organization in the past or you’re just now looking for somewhere to plan your family or business party or event, by all means, give them a call at (559) 683-6570. Kitchen facilities are also available.
Fresno Flats Historical Park is one of the prettiest little places around, successfully recapturing the flavor of 19th century life in the Central Sierra.
The current Board of Directors for Fresno Flats includes President Don Ashton, 2nd V.P. and Membership Chair Pat Kemsley, Secretary and Ways and Means Chair Vicki Burkhalter, Treasurer Frank Huttlinger, Buildings and Grounds Chair Tony King, Librarian and Historian Roger Mitchell, Director Harvey Left, and Director Brenda Negley, who edits the monthly Fresno Flats Gazette and is in charge of Programs.
The Board thanks Past-President Gwen Dunn for her valuable volunteer services over the last year.
Speaking of the Gazette, it’s full of valuable information, and is just one of the many benefits to members of Fresno Flats. Membership starts at $25 for individual membership and family membership is only $35 per year. Business, Patron, Life and Sustaining Memberships are also available.
Volunteers for various programs are actively sought.
Board President Don Ashton has announced that Fresno Flats Historical Park is the recent recipient of a large grant from the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians.
“The $25,000 is a much appreciated gift,” says Don, “and will go a long way toward many of the renovations we need at Fresno Flats, like new roofing.”
Heritage Days is fast approaching, slated for September, and the organization looks to the community for help in this or any other area, reminding the public that Fresno Flats is a community volunteer operation and they need help in order to produce the annual Parade and Heritage Days festival, and other programs the park is known for.
