This was final event for 2010 for the Chiricahua Peloncillo Historical Society --our ol' Time Picnic - Potluck. We had a beautiful day filled with great historical insights into the origin of Portal and the "movers and shakers" back then presented by Jeanne Williams.
Thank you , Jeanne for a terrific presentation. Thank you also, Sheila Clark for sharing your experiences of attending school in Portal. Thank you to Bill Mullen for sharing his historical materials for display during the picnic -- 1916 PortalTownsite and Photograph of "early" Portal main street. The Pictorial Map of "Main Street Portal - Then and Now" on display was possible with information supplied by Jeanne and Wayne Morrow.
Thank you to all that attended and brought delicious potluck dishes.
If you did not make it this year, You were missed ...
Plans are in motion for next year's Field trips, Programs, and Picnic ... Looking forward to seeing you in 2011.
