Sheriff's Notes

Message from Our Sheriff

Howdy, Corral members,
Our thanks to Worcester Bong for his May presentation on the history of Fort Whipple. The Fort has had many lives!

Since the first Thursday of July is the 4th, we will have our meeting the following week on July 11th. Hope to see y’all there!

In May, our Corral made contributions to local museums and organizations. This was done annually before Covid but was then paused for a few years. This year’s donations were made to the Sharlot Hall Museum, the Phippen Museum, the Museum of Indigenous People and the Western Heritage Center. Your dues and raffle ticket purchases not only support our Corral but enable us to once again support these wonderful organizations.

Rack cards and flyers for our August 3rd Western History Symposium will soon be distributed around town. Besides the five historical presentations, a BBQ lunch will once again be available from a local Scout troop. So, come hungry for history and lunch! 

A Corral member has donated a tooled belt and ram’s head buckle to our Corral. This member previously belonged to the San Diego Corral and received the belt and buckle as a thank you for his contributions. It has never been worn. The belt and buckle will be displayed at our June and July meetings and will be raffled for $5 per ticket at the August meeting.

Our July 11th meeting will be informative and entertaining. Shari and Bill Hill will be sharing details about the Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering, being held August 8th-10th this year, and we will again be enjoying the music of the Rusty Pistols Reloaded.

Here’s hoping your 4th of July week is filled with rodeo events, friends, family and fun!
Happy Independence Day!

Sheriff Shelly
