The Tillamook County Historical Society will meet Sunday, January 27, 2019, at 1 PM, at the Bay City Arts Center, 5680 A St., Bay City. Cost of the lunch is $10.00. A short meeting will be held to share the accomplishments of the past year, to vote on new officers and to meet in person our new president Rob Russell, as we say thank you to Sally Rissel for her years as president. This is also a great opportunity to join the Historical Society or to pay your membership dues for the year.
Following the brief meeting will be our program speaker, Jennifer Thiele, discussing her latest books, written for the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum: The Lightning Painter, about J.J. Englehart, and Art with Spirit, about Lucia Wiley. Jennifer was fortunate enough to forge friendships with members of Lucia Wiley’s family and has many new stories to share about the life of Lucia.
This event is open to the public, you do not need to be a current member to join us.
