Girl draws picture for Heritage fundraiser

Candice Martorano, 16-year-old granddaughter of Mike and Mary Porter of Gardnerville, drew the framed picture depicting the main ranch house at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park.

She volunteered to create this drawing for the cover of the program that is to be handed out at the First Heritage Fundraiser.

The event will be held at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park noon-4 p.m. Saturday.

Organized by the Douglas County Republican Central Committee, the First Heritage Fundraiser will focus on Douglas County heritage. In her research to locate the right photo of the main ranch house for her sketch, Candice also learned about the Dangberg family and the founding of Minden.

Candice is an award-winning artist. She was presented with an art achievement award by the Bank of America. The public can purchase a copy of her drawing on the cover of the program at the Saturday event.

More information is available by calling 782-3332.
