Hello Everyone,

Our speaker tomorrow is Patty Tharp and Ed Marquez.  Ed is portraying his great-great-grandfather Jose Salome Jaquez in Dining with the Dead this year. During his presentation you will learn about the important impact Ed’s relatives had in our area. As a young boy, Salome was kidnapped by the Utes to be a slave; this was not an uncommon practice.

Thank you to our speaker last week, Michelle Meyering and Nikki Taylor with the Farmington Boys & Girls Club.  It was great to hear all the wonderful things they do for the kids in need in the community.  There are many ways to support the Club, including events like the 55th Annual BBQ that we all look forward to!

Thank you to our guests last week for joining us: Brian’s son, Alyssa’s guest, and Rick’s wife and daughter.
