MISSION STATEMENT OF SPOKANE WESTERNERS CORRAL
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.
WHAT WE DO
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. 2015 will make the Spokane Westerners Corral 60th Anniversary of service and historic fellowship.
The Spokane Corral meets on the third 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 are held at Holiday Inn Spokane, 1616 South Windsor Road with dinners served at 5:30 PM. Dinner reservations are required. Dinner is $22, but dinner is not essential for participation in Westerners activities and programs. Presentations begin at 7:00 PM, and for $5 come late for coffee and dessert!
Membership is not necessary to enjoy an evening or two with the Westerners, but for yearly dues of $35 ($45 for a couple) members not only enjoy ten fascinating programs a year but a subscription to the organization’s periodical Pacific Northwesterner. Members often contribute programs and articles For more information on meetings and membership, call Membership Deputy Tom Cooney (509) 991-8065.
