Snoopin Around Springfield & Eugene

March 23, 2005

Leaders: Mary Ellen West, Liz Reanier

Our bus trip “snoopin’ ” started at the depot in Springfield with a presentation by Dan Egan, executive director of the Springfield Chamber of Commerce, about early Springfield. The freight room was ideal for coffee and goodies provided by the hospitality committee. Then it was off to the Springfield Washburn Historical Homes District, a tour led by Faye Brabham, resident expert. Further stops included Dorris Ranch and, in east Springfield, the beautiful Ruff Memorial Magnolia Park (several blocks north of 68th and Thurston Rd., at the edge of a new housing development). The Springfield Museum was followed by a short walk to Ruthie B’s Antiques and Tea Room for lunch. In Eugene, the group toured the newly reopened U of O Natural History Museum (with Jim Duncan our tour leader) and the Lane County Historical Museum.

On the trip were: Ethel Allen, Ewart Baldwin, Louise Behnke, Ingrid Carmichael, Mary Lee Cheadle, Kent Christoferson, Rose Mary Etter, Rachele Fiszman, Jeannette Foreman, Bette Hack, Donna Halker, Dora Harris, Evelyn Hile, Terri Jackson, Marjorie Jackson, Janet Jacobsen, Jean and Ray Jensen, Rosella Jones, Dody Leppmann, Cleora Mersdorf, Joyce Mixer, Liz Reanier, Edna Robertson, Janet Speelman, Velma Shirk, Mary Ellen West and VeraWoolley.
