Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE - By Eureka Mayor Nick Castle­ton

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.
