The 2022 Foothill Conservancy Annual Dinner on Saturday, June 25, will honor Conservancy members Bob and Paula Leitzell of Mokelumne Hill. The event will be 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Mine, 12594 Kennedy Mine Rd., in Jackson. 

“We’re so happy to be honoring Bob and Paula at our annual dinner,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director Megan Fiske. “Bob and Paula serve as shining examples of how dedicated, selfless individuals can truly make a difference in the lives of our communities.”

Bob and Paula have lived in the Mokelumne Hill area since 1980.  The Leitzell’s epitomize the spirit of volunteerism and environmentalism in their community activities. Bob is a civil and traffic engineer and retired Calaveras County Director of Public Works. Bob served on the Foothill Conservancy board from 2008 to 2018. Paula is a board member of the Mokelumne Hill Historic Community Trust. They are avid gardeners and are active members of Mokelumne Hill Lions Club. They readily assist with every aspect of volunteering including giving their time at the Foothill Conservancy annual dinner and many other events. 

The dinner will feature delicious meat and vegetarian offerings from Sogaard Catering of Plymouth, no-host wines and craft beer, live music from Amador County’s own Wicked Sisters Band, a fabulous raffle, and live and silent auctions with special prizes. 

Tickets are $70 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Purchase tickets below, or from the Conservancy’s Jackson office at 35 Court St, Ste. 1 (call first). The event is expected to sell out, so be sure to get your tickets early.
