14 The Julian News June 11,2014 by Bill Fink The Julian Dance Oh.= What Heights We'll Hit What dance? We used to hear that a lot when this event first started eight years ago. Now the Julian Dance & Back Country BBQ is one of the premier events in Julian. What sets it apart, other than the great music and food and the wonderful atmosphere of this event that is reminiscent of an older time, is that it is a charitable fundraiser where the money raised by the Sons of the American Legion stays in our community. Once again our merchants take their place as unsung heroes by their donations to purchase the banners that are flown at the event. Times are tough but we are real close to setting a record in banner sales this year. If you're on the fence about a purchase, contact the Post at 760 765-0126 and ask for someone who's in charge of SAL banner sales or go to the website at You don't need a business to buy a banner. We have some families that fly a banner with their best wishes. Others purchase Wall of Honor banners that honor past and present Military Service members and once purchased they are flown in perpetuity at the Julian Dance. Time is short but if you want to do it, SAL will get it done. There have always been new wrinkles to the event every year and this year is no exception. The kid's area, which was a huge success last year, is going to be bigger and better with more things for the kids to do. We'll have more "Jumpy Rooms" so the real little ones will have their own place. We'll try to set a new Back COuntry water balloon fight record and hope to entice even more kids to the pie-eating contest. We're even going to have an "Air Guitar" contest for the kids and maybe for a bunch of immature adults as well. The music has always been great but this year with Pro Sound handling the sound again the new acts of country band Barb Wire and rock'n'roll dance band Big Truth joining repeat performers Nancarrow and The Fabulous Nomads, provides a full day and night of top-notch entertainment. Local musician Blake Rogers will take the stage during opening ceremonies to sing the Star Spangled Banner, hopefully with grandson Sebastian and Ron Taylor will handle DJ duties so the music will never stop. The food has always been the best and the Sons will offer up the best in barbequed beef and chicken. Along with jumbo hot dogs and veggie burgers as well as a great plate of side dishes this is a great large meal at a reasonable price. The Auxiliary will be offering up great desserts in the food area. Nickel Beer and Society Brewing are two craft beers that are kicking in this year along with a couple of other tap favorites. There's wine by Menghini, Julian Hard Apple Cider, and soft drinks as well. Don't forget your ID, the rules are strictly enforced, as is the rule of no pets. ' Another new addition is that there will be two vans by Transit Van Shuttle that will be providing transportation to The Dance and . in and around town for five bucks. A lot of visitors requested the idea so they could do a quick visit to Julian and get back again without taking their own cars. Locals like the idea because they might be uh, tired...after a day of revelry and would prefer someone else take them home. The Sons think this is a good idea. The Julian Chamber of Commerce has helped the Sons a lot this year and between Tracy, Zorn and Krissie they have gotten the word out to the media, Group-on and set up the system where we'll be able to take credit and ATM cards for cash advances. The Chamber website and Facebook pages have also got us lots of "looks". We have reserved tables this year that include admission, meal and a bottle of wine for your party of four, six or eight. Request information on the website or leave a message at the Legion for someone to call. Wait till you see the new stage and lighting this year. Every year the Sons do it better because the community supports this event. In return, the Sons of the American Legion work real hard and they are one of the top posts in the country, maybe the best based on per capita donations to their community. This year there is a good chance that a quarter of a million dollars will be returned to Julian by our local Sons since the Dance and BBQ began eight years ago. They support kids and their events, athletics and scholarship, the schools, those in need, those who are ailing and of course our Veterans. The Warrior Foundation and the Parade committee are other beneficiaries of the Sons. This year two, one thousand dollar scholarships were awarded to Lanae Caitlin Cranfield and Taylor Roediger. Next year the Sons hope to award more. Watch for the Sons of the American Legion on early morning TV this week on the local FOX affiliate channel 69 and KUSI channel 51 for a great promotion of the event. The last minute scramble is on but we're ready to go for the best party a small town celebrates in a big way anywhere. And in the words of that inimitable super star Bugs Bunny, Overture, curtains, lights, This is it, the night of nights. No more rehearsing and nursing a part, We know every part by heart. Overture, curtains, lights. This is it, we'll hit the heights. And oh what heights we'll hit, On with the show this is it. See you at the 8th Annual Julian Dance & Back Country BBQ. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! June 14th is Flag Day and staying true to tradition, the American Legion will be homing a flag burning ceremony at the i Post at 6 PM. This is a traditional ceremony of retiring Old Glory and a great teachable moment for the kids. If you can't be at the Dance this is a good place to be.

Tombstones Here is an inscription for you - BUEL, Mary Memorial inscription : Litchfield, Connecticut Here Lies the body of Mrs. Mary, wife of Dr. John Buel, Esq. She died Nov. 4 1778, at 90, having had 13 children, 101 grandchildren, 274 greatgrandchildren, 22 great-great-grandchildren; total 410; surviving, 336. Source : Kippax 1877 WOW!!! Have you ever wandered around a cemetery? Some of the tombstones have wonderful information on them and others don't. Some have delightful inscriptions. My mom and I were in a cemetery in Oregon where the tombstone was a vehicle engine! I was in Connecticut several years ago and of course I had to wander around a cemetery! Several of the tombstones were so decade that any information that might have been on it was gone. There are several projects preserving the images of the tombstones. These have been done by volunteers who photograph and sometimes transcribe the images. ndagrave,com/ Next column - Timelines 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy (Each week I will be giving you a prompt that will invite you to record memories and insights about your own life for future descendants (52 weeks of Personal Genealogy).
