VIRTUAL Brown Bag Summer Storytelling Series
Fridays July 2 - August 27, 2021
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Tread of Pioneers Youtube Channel
While the current County mask mandate has been lifted for businesses, masks can still be required for entry by each individual business. Since masks are still recommended for unvaccinated individuals including children, and we do not know who has been vaccinated, we erring on the side of caution and are still requiring masks for the museum and our programs/events.
Hear the real history from the locals who lived it! Instead of the annual in-person event, this year, we will virtually present a weekly highlight of the past 20 years of talks and lectures from this popular oral history series. Did you miss one of these events in the past that you want to see? Just let us know and we’ll post it! Again, tune in to our Youtube Channel
