The museum had a fun morning on Friday! Larry and Marge got there at 10 a.m. sharp and there were about 25 people milling around outside the door, waiting for the museum to open! The folks were all Stanfields! Yup, the family the town was named after. They were from all over the country - Petaluma, California; Puyallup, Kinston, Bainbridge Island, Entiat, Vernon, and Renton, Washington; Portland, Talent, Sutherlin, Bend and Myrtle Point, Oregon; Carbondale, Colordo; Chicago, Illinois and Honolulu, Hawaii! Larry and Marge had a great time visiting and hearing stories of the days of old.
Such is the life of the Umatilla Museum volunteers!
