Reception 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.

An “open barn” reception will welcome and thank Executive Directors at Pioneer Bluffs. Lynn Smith, the recently retired Executive Director, and Christie Reinhardt, the new Executive Director, will greet visitors in the barn. The community is invited to stop in and visit, enjoy light refreshments and stay for the Round-Up activities. Smith is the first Executive Director of the nonprofit and helped the organization grow into the well-respected Center for Flint Hills Ranching Heritage that it is today. Reinhardt is originally from Kansas, and has recently retired from a public health leadership position in Alaska.
Originally planned for Saturday, September 2nd, this reception had to be postponed due to illness. This is the rescheduled event.
