Thank you for your contributions and support to bring a new fun and healthy activity to Tuolumne County!

Our Presenting Partner

The Chicken Ranch Tribe of Me-Wuk Indians historically flourished as a relatively moderate sized community of Me-Wuk Natives in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Our original hunting and gathering territories stretched from the Table Mountain area of New Melones to the rolling hills of the lower Red Hills area.

Towle & Leavitt is located in Columbia State Historic Park on the northwest corner of State and Main Street and offers a large selection of toys, games, puzzles, jewelry, gold, tea, and home goods.

Blue Mountain Minerals manufactures high quality Limestone, and Dolomitic Limestone for a variety of agricultural and industrial applications in Northern and Central California.

The Sonora Area Foundation was founded on the vision as well as the initial contribution of Irving Symons, a local businessperson who was generous toward our community throughout his life and by virtue of the contribution of much of his estate to the Sonora Area Foundation established a legacy that is “For good.  For ever.”
