What's Happening at Pioneer
This and that from Pioneer........
For Failing to Prepare, is Preparing to Fail

Brother Benjamin Franklin
Preparedness and survival are not just a fad – they are a mindset from our not so distant past.  All we are doing is trying to make up for the time lost when we started relying on technology and government for our daily needs.  Let’s use today’s technology and blend with the skills of the past to achieve a greater level of preparedness.

Our music for the afternoon of fun will be The Gnomes! The Gnomes fuse its dynamic folk-rock edge with original tunes and a wide-ranging repertoire that spans the globe — Celtic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Klezmer, and Native American — bringing you a sound that will touch both your heart and your feet! They combine their varied and extensive musical backgrounds into arrangements that have been described as "exotic, fresh, and unique."
