Annual TuCARE Dinner Will Be A Founders’ Celebration

Sponsored by:

The 29th annual TuCARE Dinner and Auction will take place Saturday March 10th at the Sonora Elks Lodge.

TuCare Executive Director Melinda Fleming was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

The dinner will be a “Founders’ Celebration” as TuCare began thirty years ago in 1988.

The special guest speakers will be a few of the original founders and board members including Tom Laylos and Ginger Armstrong.

The doors will open for social time at 5 PM. Dinner from the Emigrant Basin Pack and Social Club, will be served at 6:30 PM.

TuCare stands for Tuolumne County Alliance for Resources and Environment, Inc. It was established to enlighten and advise the public on conservation and the wise use of our natural resources.

TuCare is involved in issues related to public and private lands usage which TuCARE feels is essential for a vital and functioning local and state economy.

A non-profit organization, all of the TuCare programs come from donations, memberships and grants.

Proceeds from the event will benefit TuCare’s programs including “Tours For Kids”. Those are educational programs for school children, which at times, includes hands-on field trips.

The “Newsmaker of the Day” can be heard each weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 on AM-1450 KVML.
