EWGS turns 80 years old this year! To mark this occasion, EWGS is offering to members and prospective members (anybody and everybody) an invitation to come attend our celebration party! We're calling it Your Story Starts Here!
It's on Saturday, June 6th, our regular EWGS meeting date, but this is not a regular meeting. The day will run from 10:00 to 4:00. As you enter the library you will be given an EWGS Passport which you will take to Six Stations in the library to learn more about EWGS, about our genealogy collection, about how to fill out genealogy charts, how to tell your story. At each station, you'll get a stamp on your passport and a fully stamped passport puts you in the drawing for our prizes.
There will be two feature presentations. The first one will be a Who Do You Think You Are? presentation to our Spokesman columnist, Paul Turner. He has no idea what our Tuesday Gals' sleuthing have uncovered about his ancestry. The second presentation will be by Garrin Hertel, of Nostalgia magazine who will give us a presentation on Spokane in the 1930s. (EWGS was founded in 1935.)
There will be cake and punch, there will be free EWGS pencils, there will be all sorts of handouts and there will be Dorothy Dean recipes from 1935 as they appeared in the Spokesman-Review.
Hope you plan to come, spend the day, and please bring a new-member friend. See you there!
