Life on Big Bear Farms
Diane Cordial, wife, and daughters of Charles Cordial, Manager of Big Bear Farms
Diane Cordial and her daughters will share with us their life on the Big Bear Farms, managed by her husband Charles from early 60s to 1980's. Highlighted will be sometimes happy or sad, and sometimes difficult or rewarding, and sometimes poignant or humorous stories of their life on the farm.
Big Bear Farms hold a prominent place in Powell's history. Join us for what proves to be an interesting and informative step back in time when life in Powell was very different than it is today.
Once again, we will enjoy the company of RJ Basista, Pioneer Reenactor, who will set up camp on the Martin- Perry House lawn. RJ, along with some fellow reenactors, will be on hand Friday evening November 11 to tell pioneer tales around the campfire, and all day on Saturday November 12, to see demonstrations of pioneer life. There will be demonstrations, storytelling, and perhaps some military maneuvers. Something for everyone.
