The annual meeting was held June 8, 2016 at Town Hall.
President Cervenka introduced presenter Hoppe Southway and his wife Cindy.
Hoppe presented “The Adventures of Frank and Mona Southway” with pictures and stories about his folks who traveled the world with heavy construction machinery and pipeline work, and owned the Stagecoach Inn before opening the Southway Lodge. Hoppe entertained and educated us with tales of his mom’s and dad’s work at the Southway Lodge, which hosted the first Grand Lake Buffalo Barbecue, and struggled to make a living while having a lot of fun. Hoppe also explained a bit about his dad’s pipeline work, particularly in Israel and Capetown, S. Africa, and shared his own experiences growing up in Grand Lake in the 1960s and ‘70s.
