Another busy week trying to organize and re-organize our spaces and preparing for new items to be put on display. Because our physical plant has expanded so , it is impossible for us to work on the new space when there is only one of us on duty at the museum. We can not hear the front door when we are in the new spaces. We need volunteers to come and be our greeter at the front door so we can work in the back. If you have a day or half-day that you can volunteer to be our "keeper of the door” we would really appreciate your time to assist us.

Four reminders:
  1. We need artists, photographers, etc. that would like to have a show in 2015 in our art room. Please call the museum and talk to Lovella and she will put you on the calendar

  2. Sept. 14 - The garden tour of Doris Akers and Kathryn Paul

  3. Oct . 18 - our annual fundraiser with R.J. Vandergriff as entertainment. WE NEED AUCTION ITEMS FOR THIS EVENT. We can pick up items just call us.

  4. We need to identify the largest tree in Lipscomb County for the State Tree Coalition. Please measure the trunk of your big tree and send it to me with its location.


In 1960, The following editorial appeared in the "St. Paul Methodist " of Abilene:

'Teenager Go Home'

"We hear teenagers complain 'What can we do?' Where can we go?'

The answer is : go home! Hang the storm windows, paint the woodwork, Rake the leaves, mow the lawn, shovel the walk, wash the car, scrub some floors, help the minister, rabbi, or priest, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, visit the sick, the poor, study your lessons, and when you're through, if you're not too tired, read a book.

Your parents, do not owe you entertainment. Your city doesn't owe you a recreation center, The world doesn't owe you a living. You owe it your time and energy and your talent so that no one will be at war or in poverty or sick or lonely again.

You're supposed to be mature enough to accept some of the responsibilities your parents have carried for years. They have nursed, protected, excused and tolerated you. They have denied themselves comforts so that you could have luxuries. this they have done gladly, for you are their greatest treasure. Teenagers, grow up and go home. author unknown

Good advice for us all.
