What's Happening in APRIL 2020 - Please see CALENDAR

The 1925 Graham Truck spent it's entire life in this Valley. It was given to us as a well used, rather seedy looking truck and was restored at Camp Owen Boys Camp.  It is featured in our Whiskey Flats and Christmas Parades as well as local functions.  The truck is started once a week by hand crank and normally starts on the 1st or 2nd crank.  No one has broken an arm yet.
