Escalon Historical Society President Dave Russell, right, presents the oil painting “Farmer’s Relic” to the winner of the society’s ‘Park Fete’ raffle, Morris Garcia. The painting by Corrie VanderHelm-Davis depicts an old barn that still stands on Brennan Road just outside Escalon. Russell said the raffle – which normally would have been held in conjunction with Park Fete but was a stand-alone event this year, was very rewarding for the Escalon Historical Society. The winner, Garcia, was raised on a dairy farm in Escalon, is a longtime member of the society and is known for writing a children’s book “Henry, The Brave Little Tractor”, which can be purchased at the museum.
