The next regular meeting of the Prescott Corral of Westerners is set for Thursday, June 13, 2024, at the Kuykendall Community Center (formerly Prescott Centennial Center), 1989 Clubhouse Drive near the E.A. Love Airfield.

Bob Harner (pictured at left), a retired Instructional Designer who currently volunteers in a variety of capacities at the Sharlot Hall Museum, will present “Patent Medicines – A Cure for Everything,” a look at the once-booming business of marketing questionable (and sometimes harmful) medications to people desperate to find an alternative to 19th and early 20th century medical practices.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and dinner begins at 6:15 p.m. Bob’s presentation begins at 7:00 p.m.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact Sheriff Shelly Dannatt at (515) 554-6049.
