The regular volunteers have been busy lately rearranging several rooms in the museum. A number of our visitors have told us that we have one of the best arranged artifacts they have seen. So, with hope we are going to make that statement look better.
So many times since we opened in 1989 we have collected a multitude of pioneer possessions until we wish we had about two more rooms. We also make a wish that we would add an elevator as many of our visitors cannot climb the staircase. Maybe one day we will have a gift of an elevator given to us.
Last week we celebrated our monthly birthday celebration honoring Wilma Coulter, Martha Hancock and Lucille Mitchell for their October birthdays. The birthday cake was beautiful and tasty. Those attending were Hershall Mitchell, Karolyn Nunnallee, Verna Atwell, Danielle Randall, Pearl Wogan, Jean Barnett, Violet Sheffield, Sherry and Joe Wyser, Betty Speer, Wayne and Mart Guest, Pauline and Bill Bass, Mavis Carmichael, Janet Hancock and Peggy Langston.
Our Pioneer Heritage Day Country Fair is planned for Nov. 16, so make your plans to come celebrate with us. We’ll be serving a delicious barbecue dinner for only $8 which features our volunteer expert grilling team. They usually start about 6 a.m. in order to have it ready to serve by 11:30 or noon. There will be musical entertainment, activities for children, a vintage car show and a produce market. There will also be fine crafts, historic displays to show and sell.
The fair will take place at the Historical Museum and Block starting at 10 a.m. and going until 2 p.m. This year we will judge cakes, pies, baked goods, jams, jellies, pickles, relishes, vegetables and miscellaneous. Your entries will be welcomed and following the judging the items in the booth will be for sale.
The cakes will be auctioned.
Come join the fun fellowship … activity.
