Gold Hill Hotel hosting Cowboy poet Tom Zachry Jan. 14

Tom Zachry, a retired Dayton schoolteacher and cowboy singer and poet, will share songs, poems and stories of old-time Dayton characters at Gold Hill Hotel’s next Thursday night presentation at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14.

Zachry taught at the Dayton Elementary School for about 30 years. The title of his show, “Tom’s Fairly Western,” comes from a comment by former Dayton Constable Rocky Adamson, who, when asked if Zachry was a cowboy, replied, “Tom’s fairly Western.”

Dinner is from 4-8 p.m. in the Gold Hill Hotel’s Crown Point Restaurant. The presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Great Room.

The cost is $25 for the dinner and presentation and $10 for the presentation only. For reservations, call the Gold Hill Hotel at 775-847-0111.

Other presentations include: Lance Gilman’s “History, Present and Future of the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center” on Jan. 21; and­ Joe Curtis and Ron Gallagher’s “Comstock History, Stories and Information You Never Knew You Needed to Know” on Jan. 28.
