If you remember the last picture in front of the “Miners Diner” in downtown Eureka, construction workers were carrying lumber into the diner. These are the people responsible for getting the diner from dream to reality. From right to left are Par Palmer, Craig Lott, Christine Ott and Mike Jorgensen.
The diner is almost completed and just as soon as the inspections are completed they will open to serve great food in a very historic atmosphere. This will be an experience unlike anywhere you have eaten in the past. The diner will be open for Eureka’s Silver Jubilee.
Eureka will be celebrating 123 years since it was incorporated in 1892 at the city’s annual Silver Jubilee on Aug. 15 and 16. A parade down Main Street will kick off the events at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The museums will be open and the Eureka Historical Society will hold an auction on Main Street shortly after the parade, with lots of interesting items to be auctioned off. There will be vendors downtown, lots of old-timers renewing old friendships and lots of fun in the park as the day wears on. An ice cream social will complete the day at 7 p.m. Don’t forget to mark your calendars and take that ride to Eureka that you know you have been wanting to do for a long time.
The newly refurbished Miners Diner in downtown Eureka is scheduled to open in August in time for the city’s Silver Jubilee celebration.
