BBQ at the Museum kicks off Philomath Frolic and Rodeo Weekend

The Museum's annual Philomath Frolic and Rodeo kick off BBQ last night (Thursday, July 9, 2009) was a great success. About 200 members and friends enjoyed dinner on the lawn behind the Museum building. Even the Frolic Rodeo Queen's horse joined the fun!
Thanks to our sponsor, Starker Forests, Inc. for making this event possible. Special thanks to Valley Catering and Costco for providing a delicious meal.
