Brown Bag Lunch and Lewis and Clark Presentation, April 10, 2014

April’s luncheon will be held at the Museum at noon with a change in format. It will be a ‘bring your own’ brown bag event since members will be busy preparing for the Mule Sale food concession the next day; there’s only so much cooking we can do…

We will have two guest presenters:  Allen Pinkham and Steven Evans, authors of Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce: Strangers in the Land of the Nimiipuu. Lewis-Clark State College is sponsoring this program in conjunction with the Idaho State Historical Society’s Lewis and Clark Trail Committee (that includes two of our members, Bob Russell and Gina Knudson). It will, of course, be free of charge. Hope to see you there.
