Twentynine Palms Historical Society
29 Palms, California

The 2017 Desert Chic Social was Saturday, April 8th.

We have the venue, we have food and drinks, we even have entertainment. All we need now is...YOU!


The Twentynine Palms Historical Society, in partnership with the Broadview Hacienda, is inviting members and non-members to our 4th Annual Desert Chic Social. Experience the beauty of this historic Twentynine Palms home while you enjoy the camaraderie of old and new friends; have a nibble, a tasty treat, and a cool drink; enjoy a bit of blues' music from Bill and Bob. All this and more as you relax and soak in the view from Broadview, the historic residence of pioneers Bill and Prudie Underhill. There will also be a silent auction of treasures you won't be able to resist.

This event is to raise funds to help us continue to preserve our local history and culture and to help keep the doors of the Old Schoolhouse Museum open. Tickets are available for a minimum donation of $25 for Society members and $30 for non-members. This is a minimum and larger donations will be greatly appreciated. Pre-sale tickets are available at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, 6760 National Park Dr., 29 Palms. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Mike and Ann Congdon have graciously opened Broadview for this event. Broadview is the historic residence of Bill and Prudie Underhill, Twentynine Palms pioneers. Bill homesteaded here in 1928, and established the local newspaper (The Desert Trail, which is still published every Thursday), the first roller rink, and indoor and outdoor theaters. He always championed the health and vitality of the high desert, its people, and its glorious climate. The peace and serenity of this beautiful hacienda wraps around you the moment you cross the threshold. Situated on a high promontory in the old residential center of the city, the 360 degree view of the beautiful desert adds to Broadview's allure. It's a wonderful place to relax and the perfect venue for our fun event.

So, what do I wear? Anything from Desert Casual to the Nines (2 - 9's, get it?) You are encouraged to come in denim and cotton, sequins and satin, Hawaiian attire, costume of choice or uniform of the day. In other words, come as you are or how you wish to be. The only "must" besides a thoughtful and planned clothing choice is to have fun.

Date: Saturday, 8 April 2017
Time: 4:30 to 7:30 pm
