Annual Vintage Picnic Guest Speaker Edward Kelly

On July 2, 2022, more than 180 community members joined PVHA in front of the Bockius-Orr house for our Annual Vintage Picnic. This year’s event was held in the memory of Judy Doering-Nielsen and Louis Arbanas, who passed away earlier this year and late last year, respectively. Our guest speaker Edward Kelly, delivered remarks on the Kelly-Thompson Ranch, guiding us through over 150 years of its history from 1851 to present.

We extend our thanks to the numerous volunteers who helped make our event possible. A special thank-you to Ed Kelly and the Kelly Thompson Ranch for your wonderful and enlightening speech and for sharing some of your amazing family history and photos with us.
