WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
As usual we have multiple projects going on. We mailed out our 2014 membership letters. Our fiscal year is January thru December. We usually send our our membership renewal is the first quarter of the year. We are a little late this year due to the new construction project. We appreciate everyone support in all our projects.
The new addition is coming along. They are sealing the cement floor in the exhibit area. The core team is discussing exhibits and how we will rearrange and arrange our collections into the new and old spaces. We are moving the museum's art collection from the office to the art room temporarily. We are ordering the hanging system for the new area and our art collection will be on permanent display in our auditorium area.
In 1964, Arch McCarty took a trip to Alaska, and apparently wrote a series of articles. I have found three and will share them with you in the next few columns. In his first column he describes Fairbanks "is about sixty years old now, and with age it has slowed down some from it's mad whirl of youthful days of the gold rush when it was a mining camp. But it is still moving along nicely in other respects, steadily it continues to grow and prosper. You have likely heard of the city being spoken of as the 'Golden Heart of Alaska'...I had never realized how truly fitting the term applies to this modern bustling city until I made this visit and took time to observe how, in the heart of the state, the veins of gold flow to give life to the whole body of Alaska.. ... A proud memo in Alaskan history is that of the discovery of gold in about 17 miles north of Fairbanks about the turn of the century by Felix Pedro. We stopped there.. to take a look at the monument to his memory." Next week, Arch's description of Alaskan night.
Thought for the week: You can make friends in two months by becoming more interested in other people than you can in Two years by trying to get people interested in you. Dale Carnegie.
