The California citrus industry is facing its biggest threat yet – the Asian citrus psyllid and the disease it can carry, Huanglongbing, also known as HLB or citrus greening disease.

Once trees are infected with HLB, they will eventually die, threatening more than 20,000 jobs and more than 200,000 acres of citrus in California.

Fundraising Carnival This Weekend in Exeter

Fundraising Carnival This Weekend in Exeter

There’s a party this weekend—with a purpose!

 

Kimberly's Native American Indian Culture History Program is holding a fundraising carnival on Saturday, August 24th at Exeter City Park.

There will be games, a raffle, prizes, food and fun!

The carnival will go from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

 

The money will help the program buy new Native American Artifacts and set off travel expenses.

 

The program was founded by Kimberly J. Brown. She represents three tribes of the Yokut Nation: Wuckumni , Yowlumni and Tachi.

She began the program in 1992, by sharing artifacts and giving her child’s class a presentation for Native American Indian Month.

Since then, she has held presentations for over 100,000 students from Pre-K to College.
