MEEKER I The annual Oldtimers’ Celebration will be held Saturday at the Freeman E. Fairfield Center in downtown Meeker.
Doors at the center, located at 200 E. Main St., will open at 3 p.m. for oral history storytelling by long-time residents of the area and for videotaping of sessions.
The social hour begins at 5 p.m. in the lobby, followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. with the dance to follow.
The theme for this year’s event is “School.” The rich history of Rangely and Meeker schools— activities, sports, teachers, students, school boards and buildings—has involved nearly everyone who has lived here, and we will be searching for trivia facts and answers to share at this year’s event, such as: When did CNCC open? When was Parkview Elementary School built? When was the current Meeker High School built? What year was the road from Meeker to Rangely paved?
Tickets are $35 per person.
Anyone who has lived in the county for 30 years or went to school in Rio Blanco County is invited to join the celebration. Call 970-878-4138 for a first-time invitation.
