Old Timer’s festivities, Meekerpalooza on June 7

MEEKER I The Rio Blanco County Pioneers Association 102nd anniversary “Centennial plus 2” Old Timer’s Reunion Dinner and Dance will be held June 7 at the Freeman E. Fairfield Center in Meeker.
Invitations have been mailed to members, containing registration forms to return via mail by May 24.
Recognizing that not everyone wishing to attend may receive a mailed form, members and guests and potential new participants may also access the RBC Pioneers website and download an invitation online or may register electronically using the Eventbrite registration service directly from the website with a credit card.
Check out the RBC pioneers’ Facebook link as well from the website. The RBC Pioneers Association encourages new and younger membership of those who may never have participated in this great historic event.
The 2014 theme is “How the West Was Fun” and will feature some new and exciting events, including a pioneer costume contest for any period from 1885 to the present; prizes will be awarded for best costumes.
Entertainment will feature exciting performances as well. Capturing our Culture features video interviews of individuals, families, class reunions to reminisce and share stories that will serve as the basis for the RBC Historical Society’s “This is What I Remember” documentaries of county residents.
Class reunions for all Meeker and Rangely high school classmates will be held as well. Family and area reunions are also encouraged.
The Meeker Arts and Cultural Committee’s Meeker Palooza art and music festival will also be held on June 7 and that will provide entertainment for all prior to the start of the reunion.
2014 co-presidents Sandra Bradfield and Robert Amick will be assisted by co-vice presidents Sparky Pappas and Mary K. Krueger, registrar and secretary Haley Kracht, treasurer Connie Theos and strategic chair Mary Ann Wilber. For more information, contact Haley Kracht at 970-878-4607.
