Lovely weather for the Spanaway Historical Society picnic

The Spanaway Historical Society held their annual picnic and meeting on Sunday July 21 at the Prairie House Museum grounds. They re-elected their officers for the year. (correction) Shirley Mathis is the new President, Marilyn Goddard is vice president, Kathleen Creso is secretary and Chuck Overaa is treasurer.. It was a lovely, temperate, sunny summer day. It was delightful weather for a picnic.

Highlights include delicious dishes brought by the attendees, the exhibits of the museum and a June 27, 1946 copy of the Prairie Pointer, and old newspaper from the area. This Prairie Pointer was a pictorial edition with photos of many local businesses from Johnson’s corner, 98th and Pacific, Garfield Street, Steele Street and Sales Road and Midland. Jean Sensel spoke about the book she is working on about Spanaway history.
