The Riverbank Historical Society is preparing for its annual event next month, to be held at the same time as usual, the Sunday after Mother’s Day, but with a new name.
The society will host a Farm to Table Brunch on Sunday, May 15, at the Riverbank Community Center, 3600 Santa Fe St., between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. It is hoped it will be convenient for church-goers to participate.
The menu will still feature custom made omelets, fresh fruit and muffins, and include coffee and orange juice, with mimosas available for an additional $2 each.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Soon they’ll be available for purchase on the society’s website, www.riverbankhistoricmuseum.com or inside the museum during regular business hours. Also, they can be purchased from a committee member.
The society held a special IMAX event last month which raised more than $8,000 for the museum annex building fund.
The annual brunch is the only fundraising the society does each year to provide its operating budget.
The museum is operated by volunteers who open it several times a week, according to society president Craig Ethier. He said it’s open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon, and on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Additional operating hours have been added recently, according to the website and are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Riverbank Historical Museum is at 3237 Santa Fe, next door to City Hall North, in downtown Riverbank.
