Koshares Come Home

 
Koshares Come Home
 

In February, 1933, Bill Sisson and Bob Inman called the first meeting of a dozen close friends to form a Boy Scout Indian Club patterned after Troop 10 of Colorado Springs. At the bottom of the Great Depression, in the midst of the Dust Bowl and eight short years prior to World War II the Koshares were born. Anxiety was plentiful and money was scarce. Surely this was not the time to be starting something new. However, it's in these dark hours that we discover that the things we need most is the comforting warmth of close friendships.

On July 25, 2008, Bob and Bill returned to La Junta, along with hundreds of other Koshare friends. While the years have passed and things have changed within the Koshares, one thing has remained a constant throughout the Koshares' history - the rock-solid foundation of friendship.

Did you know...

In February of 2008, the Koshares performed at the Colorado Governor's Mansion - 75 years (to the month) after the first official Koshare meeting.
