The 17th annual Pizen Switch Roundup will be held at the Walker River Resort in Smith Valley on Sunday, June 28.

The Roundup is a community picnic that everyone is welcome to attend. The coffee pot will be plugged in at 9 a.m. You can bring your own picnic lunch or join in the potluck at 1 p.m. Gene Castle and his musical group from Yerington will provide entertainment.

The honoree for this year’s Roundup is Wilson McGowan. McGowan, a Yerington native, will soon be celebrating his 90th birthday. He was elected to the legislature while living in Lovelock,, and after a move to Carson City in 1966, was elected as State Controller. The McGowan family has always been strong supporters of this event.

This is a day for everyone to relax and enjoy life, for old-timers to renew friendships and newcomers to meet and spend a day with the most congenial group of friendly people, said Katie Buchanan, organizer.

For participants wanting to arrive early or stay late, cabins and RV sites with full hook-ups are available. For reservations, call (702) 465-2573 or (800) 446-2573.
