The purpose of the Westerners is to bring together in warm fellowship men and women who have a common interest and zeal for discovering and disseminating knowledge and understanding of the American West.
To this end, Corrals generally meet on a monthly basis and are given a presentation on local or regional histrory, oftertimes by a member of the Corral. Westerners encourage historical research and may popularize western lore and history though publications, awards, and preservation of archival records, documents, sites and other evidence of the Old West, which otherwise be lost to posterirty.
