Meet the Pioneers
This couple was in Lithia Park Friday going over a script for a local production called, "Meet the Pioneers". The pioneers in this case are early settlers and residents of nearby Jacksonville, OR, a historic old mining town. These nice people are part of a troupe of actors who dress in vintage garb from the late 1800's and assume the roles of townspeople from that era and tell their stories. The event takes place October 11th and 12th at the Jacksonville Cemetery, a site replete with old gravestones providing connections to the area's colorful past.
