Glenn Klein talk: “On the Road”

Imagine a 225-mile journey from Jacksonville to Corvallis on foot, on horseback — and in a Conestoga wagon!

Hear the story of how the Jackson County 4-H Empirebuilders Club made this 13-day trek in observance of Oregon’s Centennial in 1959. Glenn Klein, Jackson County 4-H Agent and chief organizer of this event, will talk about his adventures “on the road” and show film footage and a slide show of images from the trek. Join us October 8th, 12 to 1 pm in the Valley Library’s Willamette Room.
