WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
I apologize again for an error in last weeks column. The school exhibit was Jan/Feb. March and April exhibit features the art of Jo Le Ginter. She has beautiful, bright colors paintings. Please plan to come by and see her art. Her reception will be on April 12. Stay tuned for more details.
We are getting closer to completion of our expansion. We should have the walls completed by May. This will allow us to put the exhibits in their proper place and start the signage.
We are working on our membership drive material and hope to mail it and a newsletter with in this month. Our volunteer pool has been minimal with bad weather, appointments, etc.
We need volunteers so if you have a free day, afternoon or morning and want to have some fun, come join us.
Lipscomb has a new community garden across the sheriff's office designed and developed by Pam Haines. she is hosting an unveiling on Friday at p.m.. come celebrate the coming of spring (we hope).
Two history tidbits:
1864 - Ulysses S. Grant arrives in Washington to meet President Lincoln and receive a promotion to Lieutenant general, which makes him second only to the president in command of the army. It is a startling turn of fortune for Grant, who has a reputation for hard drinking, had been forced out of the army, and was at times reduced to selling firewood on street corners.
1848 - The Senate ratifies the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, ending the war with Mexico. By the terms of the treaty Mexico gives up its claim to Texas north of the Rio Grande and accepts a $15 million payment for the transfer of California and the present sites of Nevada, Utah, and much of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming.
