The Libby Pioneer Society held their annual picnic at the Heritage Museum in Libby Sunday.

Serving up hamburgers and hotdogs — and with free rides on a historic fire engine from the Libby Volunteer Fire Department — society members hold the annual picnic to recruit new members and raise awareness in the community about Lincoln County’s heritage.
