Many class reunions will be recognized at the event for alumni of Meeker and Rangely high school classes. The motto of the RBC Pioneers Association is, “Not many parties last 104 years.”
This year, the theme is agriculture, and Jason Dunham will make a presentation about local bees and honey production.
Co-presidents Mike and Mary Grady have collected pictures of barns and historic ranching and agricultural activities across the area and will share them in a presentation. This year, in an effort to include members of our entire county, the event will be catered by Giovanni’s, from Rangely.
The Rio Blanco County Pioneers Association invites all county residents who have lived in the county for 30 years, and their guests, or those who have grown up and attended school in the county, to join in an opportunity to share stories as the Rio Blanco County Historical Society members will video record oral history stories and memories of members and guests in the “Capturing our Culture” documentary program. Younger members and guests are especially encouraged to attend this event.
There will be a social time, dinner, a short business meeting followed by the presentation and then an evening of dancing. The youngest member in attendance will be recognized, as will the couple that has been married the longest, as well as the person who traveled the farthest to attend the event.
Old Timers offers an evening of fun, friendship and an opportunity to embrace the pioneering history of our county.
This celebration is the same day as the Meeker High School graduation, so visitors coming for the weekend also can enjoy that event.
