Spring is on the Way 

Posted by Administrator
Greetings All,

Looks pretty ugly out there today but i THINK spring is on the way. If you stop by the old house be sure to look for the beautiful violets blooming on the west side of the house. They smell so wonderful and they come in other colors besides violet.
As soon as it starts to warm up I hope to get some flowers planted.

Our next meeting is a week from Wednesday on March 14th @ 10:00am. Hope to see some new faces...
By the way thanks to everyone who has sent in their yearly dues. And a big Thanks to those who have donated money to Cow Creek Historical Society.
We are planning a high tea in May. Watch for the Day & Time. Seating will be limited due to space.

We have been getting inquires for renting the house for events. We are rented out for a shower later in March.

We have been approached about a class reunion in Aug. of 2013.

I know our page here hasn't been updated as much as it could be, but we are working on adding the monthly meeting minutes.
Also we hope to send out a news letter by the end of the month.
Stay in touch.

Seasons Greetings,

We would like to invite everyone to an open house @ the Old House Sunday Dec. 11th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The address is 7331 Azalea glen Rd. We will be serving refreshments. Have a look around and visit with old friends and make some new ones.

Look for our news letter. It has a review of what's gone on this last year and a story by Jennene Johns about the Redfields. Also if you haven't paid your dues and would like to, there is a form for you to fill out and mail back to us.

If you aren't able to come to the open house, our next meeting is Wed. Dec.14th @ 10:00am 7331 Azalea glen rd.

Canyonville Historical Society 

Posted by Administrator
Yesterday We hosted the Canyonville Historical Society for their annual fall meeting. It was so wonderful to have so many folks in the old house.
This event was the idea of Jennene Johns who thought it would be good to bring the two historical Societies together. It ws a fun time.
Jennene and Ceil Booth made sure the old house was at it's cleanest best. Betty Fisher brought beautiful Mums for the tables, which along with the chairs and sound system were brought in by Andy Owens. Marian Owens also helped to set up. The meeting was preceded by a great potluck. We hope to host other meetings in the future.

Don't forget we have our own meeting this Wed. the 9th at 10:00am @ the Springer/Martin house on Azalea Glen rd. Hope to see you there.

I am so happy to report that the Country BBQ and Car Show was a success. We made $2,220.00. The money will help pay for insurance and power bills for the next year. I really appreciate everyone who helped out. The day before the BBQ we preped the food at the high school. It was fun vistiting with everyone while we worked. We couldn't have asked for better weather the day of the BBQ.
The car show was a big hit. Thank you to everyone who brought your car or pickup to share. Thank you also for the ideas you shared for making next years even better.

Getting ready for the BBQ 

Posted by Administrator
Had a pre workday, workday. Although I missed out on much of it. Ceil Booth along with Andy & Marian Owens cleaned the chuck wagon and mowed the lawns. Whew! Marian (mom to me)& I spent time taking out yellowjacets & hornet nests. Cranky critters. They can so put a crimp in a bbq.
CCHS held a meeting on wed. it was well attended. We plan to have a work time at the high school on Sat. morning Sept 10th to prepare food for Sundays BBQ. Will set up for the BBQ early Sunday morning.
Hope to see you all on Sunday Sept. 11th between 1-4.
