Members of Friends of Dangberg Home Ranch will receive discount pricing and should contact the park for more information. The gate opens at 5:30 pm.

On June 29, from 10-11 a.m., “Frank Sinatra: Sinner or Saint?” Frank Sinatra was a complicated man with many different personalities. In this program, Dr. Michael Fischer moderates a discussion between Nevada historians Michael Archer and Guy Farmer as to the evidence to whether Sinatra was a sinner or a saint.

Dr. Michael E. Fischer was appointed Director of the Department of Cultural Affairs by Governor Jim Gibbons in January 2007 and served in the Sandoval Administration until Cultural Affairs was merged with Tourism. Prior to that, he practiced dentistry in Gardnerville for 31 years. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Nevada, class of 1971 and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Southern California, class of 1975.
