The Middle Mountain Foundation is hosting a meeting to welcome anyone interested in helping to preserve the historic West Butte School in the Sutter Buttes. The schoolhouse dates from 1907, but the first school on that site was built in 1860. One of only several existing schools in Sutter County from over a century ago, West Butte School served the children of the small community of West Butte until 1944. Now it is the only remnant of the once-thriving little town that was nestled in the Buttes.
Middle Mountain Foundation hopes to preserve the schoolhouse, but community help is desperately needed for the project. They are looking for people with enthusiasm for saving history, no matter what their knowledge or skills. The meeting will take place at Community Memorial Museum on February 6th at 2:00 p.m. The Community Memorial Museum is located at 1333 Butte House Road in Yuba City. For more information, call the Museum at 822-7141.
“India’s Imaginary Menagerie” features Aondreaa the Storytailor and Marilyn the Muse presenting five ancient fables from India. The endangered status of India’s signature wildlife (rhino, elephant, tiger, crocodile) is highlighted through dramatic telling of traditional tales. Music, costume and staging enhance the performance.
