Over thirty enthusiastic participants celebrated National Day of the Cowboy on Saturday, July 23rd at the Empire Ranch. The day started with a guided tour of the Empire Ranch House led by Doc Holliday (aka ERF docent Van Fowers). After the tour everyone grabbed a chair and enjoyed their own bag lunch and desserts provided by ERF. Post lunch presentations by Bill Schock (local ranching) and Bunker deFrance (his experiences as a stunt man) were enjoyed by all. Click here to see photos of the day.
