WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
Another quiet week. We are trying to clear our work areas and do spring cleaning. We are making good progress.
We are already looking towards future exhibits and programs. If you know of an entertainer or author that needs venue for introducing their work, please have them call us. We enjoy introducing new artists to the area.
I will try to send our membership information this month. So look for your renewal or invitation.
If you haven't come out to view our current exhibit, please do so. Mr. Whittenberg's nature photos are beautiful.
On Monday, we played host to the family of Jacquita Turner after a short ceremony to bury her ashes in the Lipscomb Cemetery. Jacquita was a life time member of the Lipscomb Community. She was born in Lipscomb on April 28, 1921. She completed the family of Glen and Rose Merydith Turner and brother, Deam when she was born. Jacquita attended school in Lipscomb and graduated from Higgins High School. During World War II, she lived in California and assembled P-38's, a single-seat fighter aircraft. Later, she joined Dan and Bennie Turner in Truth or Consequence, New Mexico, where she worked in their grocery store and had her own hobby shop. Lipscomb was always a special place for Jacquita. She had a cafe, filling station, and grocery store downtown for several years and later built the 7K cafe and gas station on Highway 305.
