Lake Tahoe, CA — The California State Parks and the Sierra State Parks Foundation will again 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 27, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Living history activities will include Open House tours, a children’s activity zone, an antique car show, the Eagle Wing Dancers, live music throughout the day and a historic wooden boats display. Refreshments will be available for purchase. All events are free, though please note that there is a $10 parking fee.

Organizers of the event are looking for members of the community to help put on this annual living history day presentation. Volunteers are needed to serve as greeters, parking attendants, facilities assistants, boathouse docents, crafters and raffle assistants. There are opportunities for all ages and volunteers are encouraged to wear costumes and play various historic roles, staff venues, and provide general event assistance. Whether you can donate an hour or help us all day, your help will make a difference and be greatly appreciated!  All volunteers receive park access and a special reception at the end of the event.

Volunteer orientation may be attended on either July 15 or July 23 at 4.30 p.m. at the Sugar Pine Point State Park Nature Center.
