‘Posse’ focuses on history of West
The Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners meets for dinner and a presentation the second Monday of the month (except July, August and December) at the Masonic
Temple, 1150 Panorama Drive.
An “outfit” (chapter) in an international nonprofit organization, the local Posse, now consisting of about 30 people, was formed in 1976. The purpose is “fun and scholarship related to the American frontier West” and is open to anyone interested in those subjects, according to a Posse brochure.
“I'm an avid Colorado historian. That's why I'm in the group,” said outgoing Pikes Peak Posse “Sheriff” Bob DeWitt.
The group has also just published a book, with illustrations, which puts in printed form five talks on history at previous Pikes Peak Posse meetings. Edited by area historian Deborah Harrison, “Pikes Peak Legends” is available for $12.50. For more information, call DeWitt at 473-0330.
