A family reunion will be held at the Historic Hacienda de la Canoa on March 9, 2019 from 10AM-2PM. We had such a good time last year at Canoa’s Heritage Fair, it’s time to do it again. The Heritage Fair is from 9AM-3PM and will have antiques and collectibles, fine arts and crafts, local food, lectures, music, dancers, demonstrations and animals. Head over to the Foreman’s’ house to see the George Redondo Proctor Western Heritage Collection, dedicated last year. Outside the Foreman’s house Pima County Parks and Rec are setting up a large tent and seating for us to reminisce. This event is not exclusive to Proctors. It’s a celebration of Southern Arizona family history. We may even find some ‘new’ cousins.
The Canoa ranch is where Charles A. Proctor worked as a Foreman/Superintendent for Maish and Driscoll cattle interests in the 1880s-1890s. The Foreman’s house original construction date is unknown but it’s possible that Charles A. used this as his ranch living quarters in the late 1800s. It’s the oldest building on the property and is in the later stages of restoration. For more information on the family connection the the Historic Canoa Ranch, “Proctor Family Reunion on Historic Family Ranch“.
10AM-2PM – The Proctor Family Reunion will have light snacks and water available. There will be a couple local food trucks with items to purchase at the Canoa Heritage Fair. We will have a Family Tree, photos and a couple games for the kids or kids at heart.
