Gold Rush Days…a successful event!

Saturday the village was filled with visitors as they came to enjoy Gold Rush Days. We had “the airing of the quilts” with over 100 quilts displayed on the fences throughout the village, an authors festival, and crafters throughout the village.

We miss you Frankie

Frankie Harrison-December 25, 1943 – April 29, 2012

It is unimaginable thinking of Gold Hill without Frankie Harrison, the Gold Miner’s Daughter. Frankie was as proud of her Elvis poodle skirt the day this pic was taken as she was of riding in Elvis’ pink Cadillac. Her kindness and selfless spirit will be greatly missed. She was as beautiful as the floral arrangements she created. Requiescat in pace, sweet Frankie…(this comment by Sandy Hickman on Facebook but the feeling is shared by all who knew Frankie)

Easter Egg Hunt 2012

The village of Gold Hill had a huge turn-out today for the Easter Egg Hunt! We had the hunt divided into three different age groups. After the Easter Egg hunt many had their picture made with the Easter Bunny or played checkers, corn-hole toss, ring toss or just enjoyed roasting marshmellows! The Easter Bunny said she had fun with all the children and can’t wait to see them again next year.
