Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - Front Page -

Stony­rose Her­itage So­ci­ety will host its in­au­gu­ral Founders Day Fes­ti­val Sun­day.

“We are mainly ex­cited to get ev­ery­one to­gether and have a lit­tle fun with all that has been go­ing on,” said Jay Sanchinell­e-huttman, founder of the Stony­rose Her­itage So­ci­ety.

The fes­tiv­i­ties were orig­i­nally planned in­doors, said Sanchinell­e-huttman, but were ad­justed to a street fes­ti­val due to COVID-19 guide­lines.

“Ev­ery­thing will be COVID-19 com­pli­ant to keep ev­ery­one safe,” said Sanchinell­e-huttman.

Ac­cord­ing to Sanchinell­e-huttman, the Co­lusa County Cham­ber of Com­merce will be pro­vid­ing 3,000 masks and bot­tles of san­i­tizer to be used at the fes­ti­val.

Sanchinell­e-huttman said there will be masks and san­i­tizer at ev­ery ven­dor booth and ad­di­tional sup­plies will be handed out for res­i­dents and busi­nesses to use else­where while sup­plies last.

Fes­tiv­i­ties will in­clude food, games, mu­sic, a pho­to­booth, arts and crafts, ven­dors sell­ing ev­ery­thing from horse­shoe art to jew­elry, crys­tals, an­tiques, na­tive art and more.

Sanchinell­e-huttman said he is ex­cited about the food dur­ing the event, with El Taco Nazo out of Maxwell re­turn­ing with an as­sort­ment of authen­tic mexican food.

“They have come to pre­vi­ous events we have done, and holy moly, the food is fan­tas­tic,” said Sanchinell­e-huttman.

He said there will be walk­ing tours

that will visit im­por­tant his­tor­i­cal land­marks in town in­clud­ing the mu­seum, which was the orig­i­nal town hall.

Ac­cord­ing to Sanchinell­e-huttman, mu­seum direc­tor Penne Ar­banasin will also be holding small classes through­out the day to dis­cuss the im­por­tance of salt for the orig­i­nal set­tlers in ad­di­tion to

mak­ing leather gold coin pouches for the kids.

There will also be a raf­fle and those that pur­chase any­thing from spon­sored ven­dors, in­clud­ing food, will re­ceive a ticket.

Sanchinell­e-huttman said the Stony­rose Her­itage So­ci­ety hosts sev­eral events through­out the year us­ing do­na­tions col­lected from pre­vi­ous events.

All spon­sored ven­dors at the event will have

a do­na­tion can at their ta­ble and cash or checks made out to cash are wel­come.

Those that would like to do­nate with a card can do so by speak­ing with an or­ga­nizer.

“Your do­na­tions are what al­low us to con­tinue with our events and to help the com­munity as we do,” said Sanchinell­eHuttman.

Ac­cord­ing to Sanchinell­e-huttman, the so­ci­ety al­ready has

a cou­ple other events in the works in­clud­ing a Hal­loween Bash Ex­trav­a­ganza and a free Thanks­giv­ing din­ner.

The street fair will be held from 10 a.m. un­til 5 p.m. on Mar­ket Street in Stony­ford.
