Sunday: Stanford Red Barn Festival


A ceremony honoring the late Bill Lane will highlight the Stanford University Red Barn Festival to be held from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10 at the Red Barn on campus.

The San Mateo Color Guard will open the ceremony at 4 p.m. Captain Jerry Girourd will deliver a speech about what Mr. Lane meant to the patrol, to be followed by a procession with Kip Witter leading a riderless horse around the arena.

Jean Lane will present the first Bill Lane Memorial Trophy (a bronze horse) to the winner of the student/alumni challenge.

From 2 to 4 p.m. the $8,000 Stanford Invitational jumping competition, sponsored by the Heidegger family, will take place.

The festival will include wine tasting, appetizers and sweets, and a silent auction. Admission is $10 for the horse show only, and $50 for the whole package. For more information, call Nancy Collins at 324-1005.
