46th Annual Meeting of the Arvada Historical Society @ Arvada History Museum at the Arvada Center
Aug 25 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

Join us in celebrating the 46th anniversary of the Arvada Historical Society at our Annual Meeting of the membership.  Breakfast will be followed by a brief business meeting to elect officers and Board members and a special presentation on a topic of interest to the members.

The meeting will be held in the Arvada History Museum, amid the collection owned by the Arvada Historical Society.

This year’s speakers will be Charley and Donna Ault, who will take us on a family’s theater journey from the Phipps Auditorium to Arvada’s Festival Playhouse, provoking shared memories for all.

Past speakers have included “David Moffat”, a re-enactor describing the life and times of the man who dreamed of a railroad tunnel through the Rockies, which today carries both railroad traffic and water through the Moffat Tunnel.  We have also enjoyed a presentation on the historic Kimbrough House at Grandview and Carr by the current owner, John Marriott.

Cost:  $12 per person for breakfast, reservations due by August 18, 2017

Annual Reunion Picnic @ Memorial Park Pavilion
Aug 26 @ 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for the Annual Reunion Picnic.  Bring your own picnic lunch – we supply water and lemonade.  Meet old friends and make new ones as you mingle with fellow citizens – ranging from “oldtimers” (born & raised in Arvada) to recent arrivals.

All high schools are welcomed to hold a reunion event at the picnic – just bring your own tents and tables.

The pavilion is located just north of Arvada City Hall, and ample parking is available.
