: Hi Rich!
: Thanks for the info. Hey, that's funny, I've noticed an ad by that group in our local paper too, now that you mention the whole name. Some conservative pioneer history celebrating club, I suppose? Here, they also have a pioneer parade once a year (some historic society, not this group), should be coming around soon again. Last year, they had an ad and were asking for people to contact them whose family has been in the area for 50 years or more (50 years makes old Arizona aristocracy). I didn't hear of any Indians marching in that parade, though...
: So, Roy, what kind of problems do those people give you - protest any version of history but their own? Do they go to the school board? Here in the West, it's always funny to see reactions when someone is asked: "Well, how did Granny get her farm?" Things just didn't happen so long ago here...
Here's tha web site for the DAR if you would like to know more.
