Members of the Escalon Historical Society are moving forward with plans for their annual ‘Fundraiser at the Barn’ set for May 16. Here, Sandy Russell cuts up some photocopied pages of old newspapers as Karyn Dawson wraps them around cans to be used as centerpieces at the fundraising event. Museum officials are also having a ‘spring cleaning’ at the gift shop, with 20 to 50 percent off selected items through June 1 at the Main Street museum.
