Happy New Year to all the history buffs out there. I hope 2017 is filled with wonderful discoveries and joyful events.
Are you a member of a group or club that needs a speaker? I love to speak to groups—it’s a lot of fun to talk about John Bidwell and his world. It’s a treat to interact with folks who love history. So if you know anyone looking for a speaker, send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note the “s” in the middle of the address, actually, two of them — it’s easy to miss them.)
I love to talk to elementary students, too, so if you know a teacher, pass this on. 3rd and 4th grade students visit Bidwell Mansion — a talk and slideshow about John and Annie Bidwell before they visit is a great way to get ready. Sometimes I even bring John along with me! (As portrayed by Nick Anderson.)
I have several ideas and projects in the works, and I’ll keep you posted about those as they progress. In the meantime, make 2017 a wonderful year!
