The Mammoth Food & Wine Experience, that just concluded this past weekend, could not be accomplished without the assistance of a huge roster of volunteers. Most were local, some were visitors, some were students, some second-home owners and their families, but they all came together to make the event a success.
I want to thank all the people who participated in this yearâ€™s Fourth of July parade and all the folks who helped put it on.
It takes a lot of people working together, communicating and cooperating to pull off this kind of event: the police, Cal Trans, CERT, the Fire Department.
So many people make this parade a success. In particular Iâ€™d like to thank Stuart Brown from the Town of Mammoth Lakes for all of his help with permitting and interagency coordination. Stu did a great job and made the process painless for everyone.
Was there ever a better week than this one? What a stew of stuff! If you could clip-and-save a week, this might be the one.
Weâ€™re not really sure how to digest this multi-course meal. Set upon a mise en place of Mammothâ€™s municipal bankruptcy, airport subsidies and the closure of June Mountain Ski Area, we might have thought this could have been a poisonous week.
But it wasnâ€™t. We had a fine time at our French, Eastside, multi-course feast.
