Pioneer Days Treasures Gathering

Oct. 19, 2002

Back to Pioneer Days 2002 main page

It has become a tradition for long time Sierra Madreans to meet at Memorial Park as part of the Pioneer Day's festivities, and thanks to the tireless work and tremendous effort put forth by John Grijolva, there are always lots of old time photos to be viewed along with stories to be shared.  It is also a tradition that many of Sierra Madre's former residents from the old days return for this event.  This year, the event was scaled back a little and took place from 10am to 2:30pm, though as you know when old friends gather, there are no time limits.  Here are some pictures from past year's events, and click on the thumbnail photo below to see the picture full size.
