75th Anniversary Celebration









It’s hard to believe The Ranch is 75 years old! We had a fabulous celebration on June 24th to celebrate our 75th year which included a special raffle. The prize was a week to Rancho La Puerta for the same price that it was in 1940…$17.50! Three very lucky guests’ names were drawn during our dinner celebration. They were very happy indeed as you can see from the photos above!

The celebration also included dancing, mariachi music, and a wonderful speech by Deborah about the past 75 years. And her 14 year old grandson Josh made a nice toast, wishing her 75 more happy years at The Ranch!
