Almost 400 people attended the 7th Annual Summerfest at White Sulphur Springs Ranch on Sunday June 28, 2015. The featured entertainers were the Comstock Cowboys who thrilled the crowd with toe-tapping, danceable, western and blue grass music. Many of their fans came from Virginia City and even as far away as Texas and many were outfitted in Western costume. They danced and sang along and showed the Plumas County fans how much they appreciated their favorite entertainers. The evening musical favorite was the old Glen Campbell tune, sung with the new term “Comstock Cowboys” substituted for “Rhinestone Cowboy”. The event also included a tri tip barbeque, silent and live auctions and a key raffle that opened a chest of wine worth over 400 dollars. Karen Damon from Reno was the big winner. Her key opened the chest.
One of the six live auction items was a 3 day stay at a luxury home on the Stinson Beach Lagoon in Marin County.
The event was presented by the Mohawk Valley Stewardship Council. The MVSC has been working for years to restore the historic White Sulphur Springs Ranch site. The spring fed pool is the first priority and finally after much delay due to regulatory requirements, the MVSC is in the process of acquiring adjacent land that will provide a suitable leach field to serve the pool and bath house.
