Brown Bag 2014: Wasem to discuss McComas area

GRANGEVILLE — It’s that time of year for area residents to plan their Wednesdays to include the Bicentennial Historical Museum’s Brown Bag Program.

Each session is set at the museum’s basement meeting room, 305 N. College, Wednesdays, noon to 1 p.m. Bring a lunch and listen and take part in historical presentations.

Today, Aug. 27, Floyd Whitley of Cottonwood will present the program “Lycurgus Vineyard: His Confederate Services to Idaho.”

Next Wednesday, Sept. 3, Eldene Wasem of Grangeville will present “Homesteads of McComas Meadows.”

Wasem spent more than two years researching for a book she wrote on McComas Meadows. Not only did she have family in the area in the past but her family still owns a cabin there.

Brown Bag programs are sponsored by the Idaho County Historical Society and the Bicentennial Historical Museum. They are free and the public is encouraged to attend.

Upcoming sessions include the following:

•Sept. 10: An 80-Year-Old Looks at Local Sports History with Dick Riggs of Lewiston

•Sept. 17: White Bird and the Indian Wars with Gregg McNeely of Lewiston
