The December 2017 meeting of the Cochise County Corral of the Westerners will be at Thursday, December 7, at 7 p.m. in Tombstone's Schieffelin Hall, Fremont at 4th St. We will be having an artifact, heirloom, and antique show and tell. Bring your favorites from home to show off to the Corral.

The Corral meets at 7 p.m. the first Thursday of each month at Schieffelin Hall. Come and see this wonderful, historic theater built in 1882. There is an optional 5-ish pre-meeting dinner at the Longhorn Restaurant, Allen St., Tombstone. Call or email ahead so we can tell the restaurant how many to expect.

This is Cochise County's corral and all are welcome. For more information contact Sheriff Doug Hocking (doug@doughocking.com), 378-1833, or Christine Rhodes at 432-5836. Everyone is invited. The Corral is growing. Join us for a good time.

doug hocking in characterDoug Hocking in characterI've done my portrayal of General William Emory twice now and it's been very well received both times. I'll be doing it again on October 20 for the Sierra Vista Historical Society and in November for the Prescott Corral of the Westerners. I'd like to do it for you through the AZ Humanities Speakers Program. Information about how that program works is available at http://azhumanities.org/programs/az-speaks-2017-2019/ (The warning about lack of money was for last year). AZ Humanities pays my travel expenses.
