November 19th and Bits & Pieces

Our own Miriam Robbins (photo taken last summer at her birthday party) has stepped up and will teach the computer class on November 19th. The subject will be "Civil War Research: An Overview." You must be an EWGS member and you must register by emailing Miriam at Sessions are 10:15-11:15 and 11:30-12:30.

Interested in Spokane history? How about the history of the Spokan Indians? John Alan Ross's new book, The Spokan Indians, is the 892-page result of his four decades of work on the subject. Cost for the book is $30; can be purchased online or at local bookstores (like Aunties).

The Spokesman Review carried a blurb about the need for photos of Washington veterans to accompany their memorial in Washington DC at the new Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Photos are needed for:  Air Force Col. Gallileo Bossio, or Deer Park;   Marine Pvt.1st Class Rocky Hanna of Addy; Army Pvt. 1st Class Melvin East, of Colfax; or Navy Lt. Cmdr. Edwin Koenig, of Spokane. If you have photos of these men, or know somebody who might, you are requested to contact or call (800) 562-0132, option 1.
