Conservation-Minded Fundraising Event
At Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery in Independence, California, we want to share our hatchery's history for years to come. In an effort to continue educating both locals and tourists alike, we host an annual fundraising dinner. If you're interested in conserving the local history, join us for a delectable meal and show-stopping entertainment.
The 100-year Celebration was held on August 19, 2017, at the Mt Whitney Fish Hatchery. Can you believe that the hatchery opened for operation in 1917? We had a huge crowd that joined in the celebration (est. 400=/-) with some individuals reunited after years apart. Old stories were shared and good times were had by all. It was a terrific event and having this facility in such great condition after 100 years is just SPECIAL. We are committed to preserving this facility indefinitely and look forward to our annual celebrations each August.
P.S. Ms. Sue Tagnetti of Granite Bay, CA, was the very happy winner of the Quilt this year.
