WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

As reported last week, our construction is all but finished. The parking area around the new addition will begin soon by our county crews. The new addition is wonderful and we are looking forward to planning the new areas. We still need to fund the Walker system for the art collection that will move from our offices to the meeting area in the new addition. We will be writing grants for this so our transition into the new areas will be gradual but interesting.

My meeting in Amarillo was successful. Dr. Paul Matney, Amarillo College President was the speaker. His topic was Media Relations and he shared his "Do's and Don't" list and I will try to implement them. We have always been very grateful to our media especially in our region. They have always printed our columns, press releases, announcements, etc. So we Thank them for their support.

The core team has requested that I make the following to requests of you our readers:

1. Does anyone have a "princess phone" that they would donate to our phone collection? ( one of the exhibits planned for new areas)

2. Does any one know of a wooden conference table that would seat 10 to 14 people available to us for our new conference room?

Your assistance in helping us locate items for the new area will be greatly appreciated.

NOTE: If I have mentioned this is previous columns please excuse me, but I wanted to report that our museum was one of five small museums mentioned in the Editor's Letter in the February Texas Monthly. If you get a chance read it. We have a copy at the museum posted on our bulletin board. It is always nice to be recognize and bring attention to our corner of the big State of Texas.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

Have you seen or used a public phone booth, lately? In November 13, 1962 reported the following: "A new convenience to motorists, business men, and local citizens was added to the city of Darrouzett last week when the General Telephone Company installed a phone booth in front of the Miller Equipment Co. There is another convenient phone located at the Darrouzett Coop Service Station. The business men of the town appreciate the new booths as it keeps their lines from being tied up by the frequent use by passing motorists." If any of these booths are still around, we would love to add them to our phone exhibit.

Have a good week and remember not to "text and drive" it's as dangerous as "drinking and driving".
