WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

The reception for the student art exhibit will be this Sunday, February 22, at 2 pm. The art is being judged this week. There was not the participation that we are use to but the art is good so plan to attend. This will be our first official reception in our new area and we are eager to see how it works.

This Monday was a great example of panhandle weather, I woke up to snow covered ground and 22 degree temps but it was high 30's and all the snow was just about gone by 10 am. The sun is shining and the afternoon looks like a beautiful day.

Next Tuesday is Texas Independence Day. If you are a native Texan, celebrate Tuesday by doing something you consider a Texas habit. Something we do that no one else does or send a Texas birthday card to a friend out of state ( a typical Texas Brag). BE Texas Proud. Fly the flag, eat chili, and tell a tall Texas Tale.

HISTORICAL MUSING

Texas Independence Day commemorates the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836. This event marked Texas independence from Mexico. Sixty delegates from all over Texas signed the declaration, Its language in many ways parallels the 1776 Declaration of Independence of the United States. The Republic of Texas was annexed to the US by joint resolution of the US Congress nine years after the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed. The US Congress then admitted Texas as a constituent state of the Union on December 29, 1845. Texas Independence Day is an official holiday in Texas. Sam Houston Day is also observed on March 2, marking the birthday of the man who led the Texans to victory over Mexican troops at the battle of San Jacinto.

Texas Lone Star flag became the state's official flag on January 24, 1839.
