Bruneau Valley Library 2019 Speaker Series begins
The Bruneau Valley Library is opening its 2019 speaker program series with a talk by Betty Ann Nettleton on Wednesday the 16th of January. Betty Ann is well known in the area since she grew up in the Glenns Ferry area and worked in health care in Mountain Home for many years.
Betty Annís family, the Walkers, first came to Elmore County in 1868, and her great grandfather Charles managed the Cold Springs Station for the Oregon Trail Stage. With such a wealth of family history, she is well versed in the history of the area and has made it one of her hobbies.
Currently, Betty Ann and her husband Nick run a cattle operation that spans both Elmore and Owyhee counties from Castle Creek to Bennett Mountain.
There will be a light luncheon served at noon, followed by the program. The public is invited to attend, and there is no charge. This program is the final one subsidized by a grant last year from the Idaho Community Foundation.
The program will be held at the Bruneau Valley Library at 32073 Ruth Street in Bruneau unless there is a large response which will require the event to be moved to the Emergency Center next door.
