Petalumans of Yesteryear in full Persona
A time to celebrate pride of PWC membership 125 years strong.
The Petalumans of Yesteryear are a committee of The Petaluma Historical Library and Museum.

Through costumed members, they bring to life the history and stories of the people who built and influenced Petaluma in the early years of its development.
During the Finding Our Roots Exhibit at the museum, the Petalumans of Yesteryear focus their stories relating to involvement with the Petaluma Woman's Club, as well as Civic projects. They embody the back in the day personas and share stories and historic moments from the club's past.
