Old Timers Night

KHS Program at Heritage Hall

April 27th 2005


The Kirkland Heritage Society thanks all who told their stories of their life in Kirkland.  Also many thanks to Bob Neir who was with us for the evening signing copies of "A City Comes of Age " which he has donated the proceeds to the Kirkland Historic Society.  It was a fun round of conversation and we have the VCR tape of the event available in the Resource Center.
