Dozens gathered today at the annual Old Timers Picnic and Pot Luck event in Paradise. The event is very traditional and it gives people a chance to reconnect with the ones they grew up with. It was held at the Gold Nugget Museum, which is where the first swimming pool in Paradise was located.
People also had the chance to tour the museum, and see artifacts from Paradise's history. The pot luck picnic was located outside, along with a ceremony to recognize some of the well known community members and families. Don Criswell, a native of the Ridge and member of the Gold Nugget Museum Board served as the master of ceremonies.
