Pioneer Bluffs Workday, and more...

Following is the latest information from Lynn Smith at Pioneer Bluffs:

[I wish I could be there to help archive that historical collection - what an opportunity!!]

As the first Saturday in July is the 4th, our monthly volunteer workday will be held the second Saturday, July 11.

More news… Do you know we have a collection of scrapbooks, photographs, and collectibles that was diligently saved throughout the 20th century by Helen Rogler? Have you been anxiously waiting for the chance to be involved in archiving this unique historical collection? The adventure begins on July 11!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 11 – come for the morning, or the afternoon, or the whole day!

8:30 am – Coffee and chat in the barn at Pioneer Bluffs

9:00 am – Volunteer workday at Pioneer Bluffs – work in garden, spread wood chips, mow

Noon – Lunch at Pioneer Bluffs

Noon to 4:00 pm – Archive and identify photographs in the Helen Rogler scrapbook collection. This project will be done at the (air conditioned) Chase County Museum in downtown Cottonwood Falls.

And if you really want to have a full day of fun in Chase County, Cottonwood Falls stays open late on the Second Saturday of each month. From 5:00 to 8:00 pm, you can enjoy nostalgic shopping, live music, samples, and much more.

We hope everyone has an enjoyable Independence Day – then we’d love to see you at Pioneer Bluffs or at the Chase County Museum on July 11!
And in case you want a sneak peak at the kinds of pictures we'll be looking through in the archives during the afternoon at the Museum, I've attached a photo of Helen Rogler dancing the hula! Lynn
