Some of those who have worked on Pioneer Days for several years and know something of the many problems that come up, and the perplexing decisions that have to be made, would like to publicly express their support and appreciation for Doug Dunbrack and his work as director the past few years. He has given much time to this community and county effort, and has enlisted able help.
As we look back over the years at Pioneer Days, the idea proposed by Johnnie B. Hill, and the organizational work of Robert S. Jacobson, plus the efforts of many interested people who want to preserve our heritage for the coming generations and like to see our county live and grow with enthusiasm, we consider it a worthwhile effort.
Let’s keep it going.
