DSP&P Historical Society 2019 Convention - Bailey, CO

The 21st annual convention, based at the historic Glen Isle Lodge, saw 48 attendees enjoy the beautiful Bailey area. Registration was on the front porch of the lodge Friday morning. After lunch the group stopped at Helen Tatum McGraw Park and then on to tour original grade just west of Shawnee near the North Fork ranch. It was a beautiful and quiet area we have not seen before. That evening we ate dinner in the Lodge dining room while watching the Helen Tatum McGraw film on the C&S. Greg and Ruth Vincent then talked to us about their improvements and plans for the lodge.
