  Thank you to Starbucks Town Center north for their donation to our refreshments!

 

 We wish to welcome and thank all our new and renewing members from November!  

 Christie Wright will be presenting an overview of her book, "South Park Perils: Short Ropes & True Tales." This slide show will include a brief history of Park County, CO where the stories are set and an overview of some of the historic outlaw and murder stories.  

 

We will take a journey through historic Park County during Colorado's  "Wild West" outlaw era in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The stories of notorious criminals and descriptions of evil deeds makes this a  fascinating program.

 

"With Christie's careful and comprehensive research, one gets the feeling of being transported to the crime scenes as she describes the events and the happenings surrounding each story of the misdeeds of Park County bad guys. 

 The book makes you want to load your friends or family in the car to experience the place for yourself." - Linda Balough, Executive Director, South Park National Heritage Area

   

A discounted book sale and book signing  

will follow.

 

 

We look forward to seeing you at this final meeting for 2013.
