Featured Event

           BARBEQUE & BLUEGRASS

On Friday, September 12th, the sun was hot, but the trees and canopies provided sufficient shade. The smoke abated as the wind changed. The tables in Madeline Park were filled with folks ready to party.


The Siskiyou Retirement Services gifted the Mountain Meadows community with a fun-filled event. We gathered in the park to enjoy a wonderful barbecue accompanied by foot stomping bluegrass music. A few brave souls made use of the small dance floor that had been provided. Such joy on the dancers' faces!


Bill and Shari and crew provided a menu of grilled chicken with corn relish, baked beans, collard greens, potato salad, vegetable salad, corn bread and berry cobbler. Delicious!! 


Entertainment was provided by two bluegrass bands, "Old Souls and Spicy Dishes" and "Sage Meadows and High Country". Both bands provided just the right ambiance. Dancing began with "Sage and the High Country" after most people had finished their meal. 


At 7:00, when things were wrapping up, the consensus by residents was that this year's party was one of the BEST! Kudos to Todd Woollard, Sandy Tracy, Bill Brown, Shari Spiers and all the SRS and Morrison staff for their generosity and a job very well done.
