WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Brrrr! The year is starting off cold,snowy, and Busy. The word is getting out that the books are in and the phone is ringing off the hook. If you paid for mailing we hope to get them out this week. Please be patience with us since we are few in numbers.

This is also the time of the year that we have to prepare annual reports, financial reports, etc. The student art is beginning to come in for the annual student art show. If you are a student in any of the county schools or a home schoolers remind your teachers to bring us your art work. This exhibit is always a fun and beautiful one.

Our first Board meeting for the year will be Monday, January 17 here at the museum at 3 pm. Please join us with our projects and goals for 2011.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

I am always amazed at all the facts we don’t know about our past. We record main events and happenings but the details of everyday are not always documented. There is an example of this in our new history book on page 84. Included in the military section is the following letter : From the U. S. Naval Personnel Separation Center, Norman, OK, HE’S COMING HOME!, this is the news you have been eagerly awaiting to hear. Your husband is being separated from the United States Navy this week after months of honorable service to his country. This week has been crammed full of interviews and lectures in which we have explained his rights and benefits as a veteran, and have supported a few things to prepare him to resume his place in the community. My earnest prayer and hope is that his return to civilian life will be happy and that he will be successful in all his undertakings. Very truly yours, Enoch Jones, Chaplain, USNR

I am sure the Chaplain enjoyed writing these letters to the families with the wonderful news that there loved one was returning home. A nice inclusion in our book.

Have a great week and stay warm.
