Sedona AZ (September 20, 2017) – The Sedona Historical Society will host its annual pioneer and community picnic at Red Rock State Park on Sunday, October 1 at noon. This event is open to the public. The potluck picnic lunch starts at noon. Attendees should arrive earlier so the lunch can be set out.
This is a wonderful event to be enjoyed by anyone interested in meeting Sedona pioneer descendants and long-time residents. Attendees are asked to bring a food dish to share. A meat entree and beverages will be provided by the Sedona Heritage Museum.
After lunch, a microphone will be passed around to pioneers who will tell stories of early Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona life and times. This year’s focus will be ‘Red Rock Area Historical Surprises’, and include the Schuermans, Elmers, Chavezes, Armijos, other Red Rock family history and Red Rock stories. But, all Sedona history memories encouraged.
