The Sierra College Patrons, a support group of the Sierra College Foundation, invites the public and those interested in becoming members of the organization to attend their October 5 meeting, which will welcome students from the Donner Mine Music Camp. These scholarship recipients will perform and tell stories of their summer camp residency.

The Sierra College Patrons have supported emerging young musicians for more than a decade through funding annual scholarships for students attending the Donner Mine Music Camp. Founded in 1990, the Camp offers comprehensive musical experiences in the peaceful atmosphere of the forest. Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, the Camp welcomes students from age 10 to age 18. More information on next summer’s camp as well as requirements for application and admission will be available.

The meeting will be held on Monday, October 5 from 12:30–2:30 p.m. at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus in the Fireside Room located in the Campus Center (Building J). Lunch (which is optional) will be served at 12:30. The cost of the lunch is $11 and requires an RSVP. Please call Joan Edwards at 916-663-3408 by September 30.
