The Julian Community Heritage Foundation (JCHF) held their second fundraiser for the Julian Town Square project on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Julian Town Hall. The foundation wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to learn more about the project and connect with JCHF members.

Attendees were treated to a presentation that detailed the need for the empty space to be transformed into a town square. A place the community would be proud of and visitors could enjoy for many years to come.

The foundation has been working hard to garner the support of the community for the project which will include an amphitheater, landscape featuring native plants and benches for relaxing. With Julian being a tourist town that draws many visitors from other areas in the county and beyond, the foundation would like to see the news of their project shared far and wide.

Saturday's fundraiser included light appetizers, desserts and a selection of beer, wine and hard cider. All items were donated by generous Julian merchants. Musical entertainment was provided by the Bree Jones Band.

The new Teen-Miss Julian Pageant Court assisted in JCHF would like to thank the following merchants for their support: Orchard Hill Country Inn, Jeremy's on the Hill, Apple Alley Bakery, Wynola Pizza & Bistro, Julian Beer Company, the Bree Jones Band, Nickel Beer Company, Volcan Mountain Winery, Menghini Winery, Julian Grille, Jack's Grocery and Mountain Spirits Liquor. Without these fine establishments, the fundraiser would not have been such a wonderful success.
