Navarro-by-the-Sea Day

Come on down to Captain Fletcher's Inn for Navarro-by-the-Sea day on Saturday, June 9th, noon to 5:00 p.m.  This will be the fifth annual event, celebrating progress in saving the historic Captain Fletcher's Inn (ca 1865) at Navarro River Redwoods State Park.  The event is co-sponsored by the Mendocino District of State Parks and the all-volunteer, non-profit Navarro-by-the-Sea Center.

Navarro-by-the-Sea Day will include free tours of the Inn and Mill House; a fundraising BBQ served all afternoon; local beers, wine, hard cider and non-alcoholic beverages; homebaked treats and desserts; a silent auction; postcards, note cards and t-shirts;  "Uke Jam" from noon to 1:00 p.m.; and musical performances from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., featuring Gwyneth Moreland, along with Morgan Daniels, Pattie & Janna, Marcus McCallen and Johnny Bush.

The goal this year is to "RAISE THE ROOF" to bring in the remaining $15,000 needed to finally install the permanent roof on the Inn, the last major stabilization task in saving the Inn.  Please come join the fun, check out the progress, and support efforts to finish the job!
