History exhibition and pie social June 2, 3

History buffs in Okanogan County are in for a rare treat June 2 and June 3. Ralph Fries, grandson of Ulrick Fries, who authored “From Copenhagen to Okanogan,” will present an exhibition of his research of the pioneer families, schools, and agriculture of the southern Okanogan. The research includes the areas of the Chilowist, Davis Canyon, Monse, Brewster Flat, North Star, College Flat, and Paradise Hill.
The History Exhibit will be on display at the Brewster High School small gym on Friday, June 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, June 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Pie Social will be on Saturday, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Bring a pie and visit with your friends while you discover early rural history.
Fries has researched each pioneer family and includes anecdotal stories about their lives and struggles, in interesting easy-to-read formats. This exhibition is well worth your time to learn about and appreciate the pioneer life.
