Speaker Panel: Life in the 70’s

Sunday, April 12, 2015 1:30pm
We have invited a panel of speakers to share their memories of life in the valley during the 1970’s. The panel will consist of those who came to the valley during those years and those who were here to “welcome” them. What fun it will be to hear the stories from these years when the valley “welcomed” many newcomers, often called “Back-To-The-Landers”. A $5 donation is requested. Refreshments provided. Several Authors and/or “Book Experts” from our library of books will be on hand following the Roundtable. An opportunity to get a signed book and hear the stories first hand!

Member Meeting

Sunday, April 12, 2015 1:00pm
On April 12th, we ask our members to arrive at 1:00pm. Because we didn’t have a quorum at our Annual Meeting in February, we will hold board meeting elections prior to the Roundtable. Vicky Center, Steve Sparks, Marvin Schenck, Sheri Hansen, Jim Hill, Sandra Nimmons and Bob Nimmons are all current board members whose terms are expiring. Each of them will be running for reelection. Jim Hill, president will solicit nominees from the floor prior to the vote. PLEASE ATTEND - We need at least 15 members for a quorum. We will also be accepting Membership Renewals during this time.
