"Recreating Kittitas Valley's FIRST Wedding"  (Society Meetings)
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
413 N Main Street, Suite L Ellensburg, Washington 98926
After the usual business meeting, the June presentation will be about the first wedding in the Kittitas Valley.  It will be presented via a 30 minute video that will be hosted by KCGS Member Art Clark.  
 
Here's how Art describes how the video came to be:
 
"Marilyn Hanson Vietzke was from a Kittitas County pioneer family. She was interested in county history and read A.J. Splawn's book "Ka-Mi-Ikin and found his story about the first wedding in the Kittitas Valley in November of 1870. As part of the upcoming centennial celebration of Washington statehood in 1989 she decided to turn that story into a one act stage play. She enlisted my help in producing and directing the play, because I was a theatre major in college. The play was presented to the public in 1988. One of the cast members, Paul Miller, was an Ellensburg Community Television producer and suggested we film the play for ECTV. This movie is the result of that process. We used the Robbins cabin in the fair frontier village as the setting." 
 
Sounds like an interesting presentation. 
 
As usual, guests are also welcome at our meetings and presenations.  Lite refreshments will also be available during the break.  Hope to see you Monday, June 10th at 1:30pm.
