WE ARE BACK - MEET THE PIONEERS - OCTOBER 6 AND 7, 2017

​​​​​​As many of you know, after celebrating our 10th Anniversary of this very popular and award winning Living History program called Meet the Pioneers in 2015,  we took a year off. Much to our surprise and delight, The Madrone Theatre Company stepped forward and presented Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology​ as a fund raiser for our organization. It was a wonderful show, a perfect fill-in for our program, and a very successful fund raiser. Thank you to all of you who were able to attend and experience this wonderful and moving theatre production.

 

We certainly heard loud and clear from our fans expressing their disappointment but, understanding of our decision to take a year off. Well I am happy to report that as promised, Meet the Pioneers in Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery will return on Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7, 2017. Plans are currently being worked out and further details with regard to tour times, ticket sales, transportation, etc. will be forth coming. We appreciate your past support of this very popular Jacksonville Fall Event and very much look forward to welcoming you back to this year's show!
