The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County is gearing up for its annual fundraiser, Trees and Traditions on Saturday, December 2, from 5 p.m.to 8 p.m., but they’ve been awfully busy as the holiday season approaches.
Reflecting the important role the museum plays in our region, on Saturday, the Community Memorial Museum hosted the Yuba-Sutter Arts display of photographs of area veterans. The display will remain up now through November 26.
On the previous weekend, the museum hosted a television crew, and comedian and political provocateur Kamau Bell, host of the CNN show “United Shades of America.”
Mr. Bell explores communities across America to understand the unique challenges they face. He interviewed Valarie Kaur, a Sikh woman born and raised in Sutter County, while sitting in front of the permanent Punjabi-American museum exhibit.
The episode will air during season 3 of Mr. Bell’s show, which begins sometime in the spring.
You can buy tickets for Trees and Traditions at the museum for $45 per person. Hors d’oeuvres and dessert will be provided by Hillcrest Catering, wine from Sicilia Vineyards, coffee from Clark Avenue Coffee, and music will be provided by a fantastic jazz singer, Jonathan Karrant. http://www.jonathankarrant.com
