The California State Parks and the Sierra State Parks Foundation will be hosting Living History Day at Pine Lodge, a celebration of the anniversary of the lodge also known as the Ehrman Mansion, at Sugar Pine Point State Park on July 28, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Living history activities will include Open House tours, a children’s activity zone, an antique car show and a wooden boats display. All events are free, though parking fees are required.
Organizers of the event are looking for members of the community to help put on this annual living history day presentation. People of all ages are needed to wear costumes and play roles of the Ehrman family members, guests and employees. Helpers are also needed for the children’s zone that will include crafts, games, and activities. It’s a terrific opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about Lake Tahoe’s colorful history, and a unique way to experience this California State Park.
Volunteers are needed to serve as greeters, parking attendants, facilities assistants, boathouse docents, crafters and raffle assistants. Volunteer orientation may be attended on either Sunday, July 15 at noon or Monday, July 23 at 5 p.m. at the Sugar Pine Point State Park Nature Center. For more information, please contact Heidi Doyle at (530) 583-3074.
