Next SJBAS Meeting

Thursday, May 12th, 7:00 p.m.

Center of Southwest Studies, Fort Lewis College 

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, May 12th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Lyceum at the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College. After a brief business meeting, speaker Julie Orr will present, "New Caledonia and Its Archaeology."

New meeting format… time to get social

The SJBAS board would like to invite everyone attending the May meeting to arrive at 6:30 p.m. for a half-hour social. CSWS staff will open the foyer for us so we have some time to visit before attending the meeting in the lyceum. Rumor has it that there may even be some refreshments. So please come early to visit with your fellow SJBAS members without having to climb over the fixed tables and chairs of the lyceum.

Annual SJBAS Picnic - June 9, 2016

The SJBAS Annual Picnic “semi potluck” will be held Thursday June 9th, at 5:00 P.M. at the home of Foxie and Dick Mason, 1940 County Road 250, Durango, CO. 

Directions: Drive north on Main Avenue, turn right on 32nd Street (City Market on right), drive to the end of 32nd Street. Turn left onto CR 250, drive approximately 1.8 miles north. Look for pink house/grey roof on left, the driveway for 1940 will be on the RIGHT. Look for signs; phone 970-247-0252 if you require further instructions.

The club will provide brats (some vegetarian), hot dogs, buns, condiments, disposable tableware, bottled water, iced tea and lemonade. Members whose last names begin with A through F should bring a side dish; G through K a dessert; L through R an appetizer; and S through Z a salad. Bring alcoholic beverages of your choice, if you wish.

You may sign up for the picnic at the May meeting, or please RSVP to Foxie Mason at by June 4th, so we have a fairly accurate head count for our food order. You are welcome to bring family members, friends and prospective new members.

If you would like to volunteer to be on the set up or the cleanup crew, please contact Jim Mueller at or 970-259-8870.

We will be having a book sale at the picnic to raise funds for the John W Sanders Internship Fund. Please bring books you would like to sell to the picnic. All proceeds will go to the internship fund. Thanks, Peggy Morris
