Sunday, July 19 is the annual meeting and potluck picnic for the Spanaway Historical Society. Held at the Prairie House Museum, the annual party is a fun family event that includes a chance to see all the displays at the museum.
Burgers, hot dogs and coffee are supplied by the historical society. Attendees bring favorite dishes and usually there is also some entertainment, often it is the Tacoma Banjo Club although their invitation did not state who it is this year.
Come out and join the fun, learn a little history of the area that was once a hunting and gathering area for the Puyallup and Nisqually Tribes and then Hudson Bay Company farmland until 1869. The lake that was at one time a water source for the City of Tacoma and the park that sprang from the abandonment of that water supply to the city.
