To bring together in warm fellowship men and women with a common interest and zeal for discovering and sharing their knowledge and understanding of the Pacific Northwest.


Westerners encourage the preservation of history through publications, awards, archival records, documents and other evidence of the Old West. There are more than 130 chapters, called corrals, around the world, the first one being organized in Chicago in 1944. The historic Spokane Westerners

Corral was organized in 1955 as the seventh such group to form. 2020 will make the Spokane Westerners Corral 65th Anniversary of service and historic fellowship. 

The Spokane Corral meets on the second Thursday evening of each month, except July and August, for dinner, a presentation of some aspect of our interesting local history, and an opportunity to meet with other like-minded friends and neighbors.  Meetings will be on Zoom during a Covid-19 warning when announced by current Governor. At current time we will meet at the Corbin Center located at: 827 West Cleveland Ave., Spokane WA. 99205 for dinner and a presentation will begin at 7:00 PM. 

Anyone can join in on Zoom by sending an e-mail to: Dick Jensen-Inlandempiretours@hotmail.com for invitation. 

During the Pandemic we will be meeting on Zoom and the URL for the meeting will be posted before the second Thursday of each month.
