IT IS A HERITAGE EVENT AS WELL

You may remember the Saltair Centennial Celebration in 2010. Historical storyboards were developed that told the stories of original families in Saltair. The Society has looked after those story boards, and they will be on display at the open house for all to see again. People loved viewing these boards and visiting with the other original Saltairites. Please join in and reminisce with old friends.
