The Friends of Cedar Mesa will host a Cedar Mesa Celebration on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the Bluff Community Center in Bluff, Utah. Doors open at 12:00 noon.
You are invited to join friends new and old, and to laugh, listen, talk, see, sing, dance and dine as we celebrate Cedar Mesa.
This year’s celebration focuses on information “Beyond the Archeological Story”. The annual event includes a keynote presentation by Scott Thybony on “The Disappearances”. Thybony will speak on the disappearances of Everett Ruess, Lucy Garrett, and Dan Thrapp who vanished in the region at the same time. The event also features a new film on Ruess by Corey Robinson entitled Nemo.
Friends of Cedar Mesa has also gathered a fine group of Cedar Mesa luminaries who’ve dusted off their memory cards to share “the way we were!” Stories from Cedar Mesa will be provided by Bill Lipe, retired professor of archeology, Fred Blackburn, former ranger and author of Cowboys and Cave Dwellers, Lynell Schalk, fomer law enforcement ranger, Rigby Wright, former San Juan County sheriff, and Winston Hurst, a well-known archeologist who has resided in the area for 40 years.
A Chili Feed/Pot Luck begins at 6:00 p.m. At that time, participants will also have an opportunity to view wonderful items in a Silent Auction. The Silent Auction closes at 8:00 p.m.
The event closes with music provided by Sand Sheff and Sunni at the NADA Bar in Bluff.
