The meeting took place on Monday, December 2nd from 1 to 2:30 PM at the Oakmont Recreation Center.

A brief meeting of the membership was held at 1 PM where members voted for Paul Herrmann to serve a second three year term as trustee and Bill Pearson was approved to serve as trustee for one year, completing the third year of Toni Ashby’s term following her resignation.

 Light refreshments were served to a group of about 75 Museum members and guests from both Sun City and Sun City West.

Our guest speaker, Dr. Diane Cheney, a resident of Sun City West for 27 years, spoke on “What was in the Sun Cities and Surprise Area Before Us?

Her presentation covered excavations of Indians, pioneers, dude ranches, Basque shepherds, miners, Castle Hot Springs spa, cowboys, camels, railroads, and gandy dancers up to the arrival of Del Webb.

It was very enlightening and informative and enjoyed by all who were present.
