First meeting set for Tuesday, September 7th

Jorgensen Barn

The first meeting of the 2010-11 program season has sneaked up on us, and it'll be at a different location!

Our opening program this season will feature a Barn and Saddle Tour at the Jorgensen barn, 1905 Stagebarn Circle, along Spearfish Creek in north Spearfish.  This unique program will begin at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 7, 2010.  There'll be limited parking near the barn and additional parking at Jorgensen Park, which is adjacent to the site.  

Speaker Joe Jorgensen will provide attendees with an opportunity to see one of the finest old barns in the region, including an outstanding collection of more than 100 saddles that were among those collected by Joe's dad.

The presentation is free and open to the public, and -- as always -- there'll be some refreshments for folks in attendance. Of course, it's also an opportunity for non-members to join the Spearfish Area Historical Society, which meets each month September through May.  Since this first meeting of the year is off site (sessions are normally conducted at the Spearfish Senior Citizen's Center), attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair.

We'll soon be posting the full schedule of program for 2010-11, so bookmark our site and check back soon!
