Contribute to the conversation as we recall Niles and days gone by. The names Bunting, Kimber, Roeding, Rodarte, DiGuilio, Jones, and Turner may jog your memory. These are just a few of the people who will be present at the gathering. Learn about the war years, California Nursery events, the pet parade, the flood of 1955. Add to the list of memories with personal photos or memorabilia; please bring them to share or to have archived by the museum. If you choose, leave items and pick them up the following week.

The discussion begins in the theater at 1pm. followed by a walking tour, led by David Kiehn at 3pm. Suggested donation for the walk is $5.
