Pioneer Bluffs Open House

It was a windy day at Pioneer Bluffs for our Open House on Sunday afternoon, but we couldn't have asked for a better turnout. 90 or 100 we're guessing. Bill and Tom and Jim Worster and Floyd Beck had worked like maniacs getting the place cleaned up and accident-proofed. Brad and Brianna Talkington, teens from Matfield, mowed the lawn. Barb made countless cookies and I mixed lemonade and made sure we had coffee and decaf and all the trimmings. We even hung a brand new American Flag on the porch.

Annie Wilson's band, Tallgrass Express, played music from the period and Bill gave informal tours and answered questions. At the end of the day we even received our first donation!

The excitement of others is a great boost of energy for us!
