- Third Thursday Dinner Lecture
100 Years of Ranching II by Gail Steiger
November 21 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Join us for another Phippen Museum “Third Thursday” dinner program! This presentation was so popular the first time that Gail is coming back to do it again. So . . . don’t miss this wonderful evening featuring a delicious catered dinner and entertainment by Prescott’s own Gail Steiger whose family has been chasing cows locally for more than 100 years. Gail will be talking about how the cow business, the community and the country have changed over the years. He will throw in some songs and a poem or two along the way and has also promised to add some new and improved content. So if you came to his program in August, you can expect some extra surprises!
