With the new Blacksmithing facility at the TONOPAH HISTORIC MINING PARK there is an opportunity for possible blacksmithing classes. Most western states are offering blacksmithing classes at various levels. Classes run for two to four days, are very popular and a good way to share some important history.
Would you please help the Community Youth Advisory Calendar drum up some support for this Thursday's Jim Butler Days Talent Show? CYAC sponsors the event each year, but this year the number of participants is waaaaaay low and CYAC almost canceled the event.
Tonopah and the surrounding communities have so much talent--people just need to be encouraged. Anyone of any age can participate with any type of talent! Jokes, stupid human tricks, singing, dancing--all talent is welcome for this family event.
For more information, contact Deb Cobb. There is no cost to participate and any talented person can show up prior to the show's start and register. The talent show starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
