First Time Plans to Celebrate “Dear Mad’m”
Dear Mad’m Day August 13th, 2011
View from the former Dear Mad’m Cabin site of the Klamath River’s new placement from 2011,
Happy Camp is celebrating a literary celebrity of our community. The book Dear Mad’m by Stella W. Patterson has brought many visitors to our community and encouraged many “senior citizens” to lead an adventurous life despite advancing years.
The Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce is planning the luncheon picnic to honor Stella Patterson and those who still maintain the spirit she exemplifies today! The Luncheon will be held in the shade of the trees on the lawn of the Klamath River Resort Inn and Rafting Lodge on the Klamath River east of Happy Camp.
Dear Mad’m Day will be Saturday, August 13th and the picnic luncheon for $5 donation will be at 11:00 o”clock. Sandwiches, ribs, jewel and fruit salads and specialty breads are planned, as well as Dolly’s Strawberry Lemonade and dessert.
We are so pleased that guests who have known Dear Mad’m from their time on the River, will be with us. Peter and Liz Lismer who are related to Stella Patterson and who are writing a book to be published by Naturegraph on her life plan to come, Hazel Davis Gendron, our local historian, who used her artistic talents for a drawing of Dear Mad’m will bring the portrait with her and numerous other “Friends of “Stella” from near and far will be coming to the picnic luncheon.
Plan to come to this first celebration of a literary treasure of the Klamath, Dear Mad’m!
