Saturday, June 4, was one of California's major social events of the year with the "Gala at the Mansion" charitable event hosted by Pam and Rich Green.

The restored 1898 Eitzen Mansion, carriage house and square block of grounds covered with manicured lawns and neatly trimmed shrubs and trees serve as an elegant background for any event. Add an hors d'oeuvres buffet, DJ Shane Baumhoer featuring music from 40s up to the 80s, dancing, socializing and an open house, it becomes an event which draws attendance of local and area residents as well as former residents to the city.
