Traditional John Muir Birthday Celebration - All Day - Saturday, June 1, 1996

Taking a clue from the Queen of England who has her birth anniversary delayed a few weeks to ensure better odds for favorable weather, we have done likewise for the same reason, and so as not to conflict with the March for Parks being held on April 21 in Martinez and nationwide. The observance of John Muir's 158th birthday will be June 1, 1996. The St. Andrews Society is arranging its ever-popular Scottish program of pipers, dancers, et cetera.
