Teddy Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, will be speaking at McMenamins Old St. Francis on Wednesday, May 9th, as a fundraiser for the Des Chutes Historical Museum.  Museum Director Kelly Cannon-Miller says the Oregon Historical Society and Wells Fargo are bringing the "Teddy Roosevelt's Oregon Road Show" to several Central Oregon venues next week. "He will extemporate.  There will be a question & answer. And then we will be doing a special raffle to support the Museum but to buy tickets to win something from Teddy himself.  The clever among your listeners will probably figure out what item Teddy will be giving away but I won't spoil it, you'll have to come see." Cannon-Miller says the nation's premiere "Teddy Roosevelt" impersonator,  Joe Wiegand, will be joined by Wells Fargo History Museum's Steve Greenwood, who will talk about the history of Wells Fargo. She says although Teddy never came to Central Oregon, his role in conservation had a huge impact on our area. Space in the McMenamin's theatre is limited; you can buy advance $5 tickets at the Des Chutes Historical Museum ($10 at the door). The event is at 11 a-m May 9th.
