Pioneer Museum Filled With Local History

by Makayla Merideth

Established in 1952 by the Julian Woman’s Club, the Julian Pioneer Museum provides a little taste of what the town was like when it was first created during the 1870 California Gold Rush. The museum is home to numerous displays of mining equipment, Native American artifacts, old photographs depicting what the life was like in Julian, and the finest lace collection in California. Museum doors are open Thursday-Sunday 10am to 4pm and is run strictly by dedicated volunteer staff. The Julian Pioneer Museum and their loyal volunteers were recently recognized by State Senator Joel Anderson for its outstanding involvement in the community along with the excellent service and taste of history it provides. “The volunteers that make the Pioneer Museum possible provide a wonderful gift to Julian’s visitors and locals,” said Anderson. “Julian’s rich heritage is thriving at the Pioneer Museum and it’s a wonderful resource for future generations to learn about the history our community.” Currently, the museum is making some exciting progress. Julian Pioneer Museum is already known for its rich collection of photos from decades ago. The photo collection is being digitized in order to be more accessible to the public and to be more safely archived. Susan Fowler, the dedicated Secretary and Docent of Julian Pioneer Museum, has been working over the years on digitizing the pioneer family files. Positive changes are coming to the historic building where the Julian Pioneer Museum stands today, and David Lewis, the President of the Board of Directors of the museum, emphasizes the importance of the support from volunteers and friends of the museum: “None of these things could happen without the dedication of our volunteer docents. None of this could happen without the money donated privately and by the County of San Diego. Since we have no employees, every penny we earn goes toward maintaining and improving the museum.” Cherished by the Julian locals and relished by all visitors who venture through its doors, the Julian Pioneer Museum is a must-see! Much like the town it’s found in, the Museum will leave its visitors joyful and wanting more.

A Note from the President: On January 28, 2011, the Julian Pioneer Museum Charitable trust separated from the Julian Woman’s Club. The transition was only a formality, since the Julian Pioneer Museum Charitable Trust is the entity which already existed and allowed the museum to operate as a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. A new board of directors was formed which set to work operating an organization that has existed since 1952. It should have been easy...right? Soon, it was not. Finishing a multi-year addition project proved to be a painful diversion that demanded most of our attention, attention that should have been focused on what we provide the public... Julian’s rich history. This year, we finished the addition and are now set to meet our goals. The most immediate of those goals is to reorganize all of the collections we exhibit. One of the most often heard suggestions to us is that the museum needs to be more interpretive. In other words, we need to explain what people are looking at. Fulfilling this need requires us to purchase ways to better display our extensive collections. One of those ways is to purchase display cases which are better suited to the task. Better suited to the task means that they will save space while improving what our visitors see. The first operating decision we made when we took over the museum, was to operate as an all volunteer organization, no paid employees. Finding volunteers is hard, and too few of them means our docents each spend around 50 days a year at the front desk of the museum. Finding funding for what we do is even harder. On Friday October 10 2014, at 5:30 pm, a benefit dinner of Chicken Picata will be offered at the American Legion Post in Julian. Proceeds from the dinner will be used to purchase several new display cases for the museum. The new cases are essential to the reorganization of our collections. Museum docents will be offering tickets to the public. Tickets may also be purchased at the door until sold out. Tickets are $12. You may also contact the museum at 7650227. If you cannot attend the fundraiser, you may send donations to the Julian Pioneer Museum at Post Office Box 511. Please help the Museum in our efforts to preserve, protect, and share Julian’s rich history. Thank you, David Lewis-President

Eagles Ruffled By Rams

by H. “Buddy” Seifert

It was actually a pleasant early fall night in Borrego. Not too hot, a thin cuticle of moon just setting over the western hills, but I digress. Your Eagles traveled down to the valley for their second Citrus game of the season. After a non-league thumping by the Rams on August 29th, my young Eagles team was ready to test themselves against the older team. JJ Corrales took the Rams short opening kick at the Eagles 20 and fought his way up to the Eagles 46 before he was brought down. Darren Duffy was hit behind the line of scrimmage by a rampaging continued on page 7

The Woodwind Quintet From Navy Band Southwest

The Julian Branch Library is pleased to be hosting the Navy Band Southwest on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 6 pm. This concert is in collaboration with the California Reads program. Those who experienced the performance in March of this year will surely be back. Those who were not here will want to make sure they attend this concert. Two of the performers are returning to Julian. The Quintet will be playing a mix of patriotic American music and well-known classical selections that showcase the five musicians in our woodwind quintet. The group comprised of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and saxophone. Patriotic selections include a nice arrangement of "Shenandoah", Copland's "Appalachian Spring", Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever", and some navy themed pieces. The classical selections will include "Carmen Fantasia" by Bizet, Ibert's "Trios Pieces Breves", and Mozart's "Concert Overture in Bb Major". A handful of other pieces will round out the program. All of these musicians were required to go through a rigorous audition process before being accepted into this elite group of performers serving in the military. Like all others, they also must go through basic training and attend music school. Musician First Class Paul Roberts, bassoon, is originally from North East, Maryland and began playing the bassoon at age 13. He attended Towson University where he earned a Bachelor Degree in Music Education in 1992 and enlisted in the Army National Guard in 1994.

She joined the Navy in 2010 and has been stationed at Navy Band Southwest for 3 ½ years.

Melodrama Opens Friday The “Gold Rush Girls” songs come to Julian So who are the wonderful people who are volunteering an immense amount of personal time to continue the tradition of the Old Time Melodrama for the 58th year? This week we will introduce you to the Triangle Club Chorus (AKA the “Floozies”). In order of seniority, Nancy Kramer (music director and 13 year veteran), Diane Linthicum, Michele Phillips, DeeDee Nelson (Triangle Club President), Mary Lynn Tuttle-Cravey, Sunday Dutro and three new ladies joining us this year, Jennifer Larson/Reed (President of the Julian Union High School PTO), Kat Dupre (owner of The Julian Yarn Shop), and Jodi Davis with her Puli dog, “Kati.” Nancy Kramer, as Chorus Director, is charged with the task of finding the songs that the ladies will sing. This year, as she sleuthed around the internet trying to find ones that would be appropriate for this year’s play, she came across a new musical called Gold Rush Girls by Sanders and Sanders. When she listened to the songs, she knew she had struck gold! The musical, is based on the best selling book by Lael Morgan called The Good Time Girls which takes place during the Klondike Gold Rush. The theatrical adaption and music were written by Jerry and Karmo Sanders, of Scarborough Maine. Ten years after they first began the project, Gold Rush Girls opened in Anchorage in July, 2012 and ran for 6 weeks to a sold-out house every performance. It was during this successful opening that they found out Jerry had cancer and he died 9 months later. Karmo, who lost her husband of 42 years, best friend and musical collaborator, had the wind knocked out of her sails and temporarily lost the will to continue with promotion of their magical musical. Nancy recounts her contact with Karmo, “When I emailed her to ask if the Triangle Club could perform two of her awesome songs during our Melodrama, I could tell she was genuinely delighted. She sent us the musical scores right away. Karmo emailed Nancy back, “Right now, I’m sort of working through the process, trying to re-gain my courage. Just like the ladies out there on the frontier. Just like these fabulous ‘gold rush girls’ who inspire me - I’m dedicated to seeing these ladies of the night take the stage with song and dance. It’s music that has you coming out of the theater humming.” She is definitely right about that! As Nancy and Karmo continued emailing back and forth building a friendship across 3000 miles, Karmo wrote “Makes me want to put a feather in my hair, strap on a corset and join the festivities.” “I think we have helped rekindled her desire to promote her musical and I feel really good about that,” says Nancy. “We are a long way from professional singers and I’m quite sure we don’t do the fabulous songs, Give us the Vote and When You’re With Me, the justice they deserve but we will try our best.” If you would like to hear these songs as performed in the musical, as Sanders and Sanders intended, go to http://goldrushmusical. com/music.html Come and see the 58th annual Melodrama and Olio being held at Town Hall every weekend in October. Opening night is Friday, October 3rd and all proceeds go to the Bobby Green Scholarship fund for Nursing and Performing continued on page 5
