The East Parker County Genealogy and Historical Society invites all who are interested to join them for their monthly meeting and salad luncheon beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the Willow Park Community Center, Ranch House Rd. and Stage Coach Trail. The program will be a computerized photography collage of Parker County photos by Lorena Friddle, president of the Parker County Women’s and Newcomer’s Society, and a 1930s video of the El Chico Ranch in Willow Park donated by early resident Bob Rothel. The video was made when his father was the ranch foreman. If time allows there will be a showing of an 1920s movie of Aledo donated by the King family.
