Sierra Valley Grange hosted a special showing of the movie, Oildale. The Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen and Cattlemen sponsored this heartwarming movie that honors our Veterans. The Director, Dave Mueller and Screen Play Writer, Lynn Salt were in attendance to speak to the audience about their motives, mission, and passion that went into the making of their movie. The evening was a benefit for the Sierra Valley Grange and the Plumas County Veterans Stand Down.
The CattleWomen provided a full snack bar plus complementary Hotdogs for the guests. Special guests in attendance were Bill Cook and Michael Tortora from the VA, Steve Ross, Pat Fruchtennicht and Don Yegge from the VFW, Scott Quade from the Plumas County Veterans Standown, and Nate Smeltzer with his Eagle Scout Honor Flag Project. About 125 people attended the show. Oildale turned out to be a wonderful story about families, Veterans and persevering in life. The CattleWomen, Cattlemen and the Grange wish to thank the organizations, the Veterans, their families and community members who attended.
