WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

A busy week getting ready for our business award reception held on Sunday. We had a standing room only crowd with over 100 people in attendance at the reception. District #88 State Representative Ken King assisted Dorothy Schoenhals in recognizing seven of our local businesses as Historic Business Texas Treasures. Each received a certificate and a decal that they can display in their business window. The award is one of the Texas Historical Commission sponsored programs. Each of the seven businesses had family groups representing them.

Also present was Barbara Brannon, Executive Director of the Texas Historical Commission Texas Plains Trail. This is the tourist oriented program that Lipscomb County has been involved with since its inception. Everyone present enjoyed the presentation but the recipients were reluctant to publicly speak about their family businesses but plenty of stories were being shared during the refreshments. One nice happening was the identification of the location of our military photograph of the 90th Infantry. Chris Babitzke is in the photograph and he identified himself and stated that the location was Fort Leverwood, Springfield, Mo. That makes two identifications in the photograph and validates that it was one of our local units during WWII. One more piece of the puzzle solved. Thanks, Chris.

This is the last two weeks to see Dick Wilberforce's wildlife photographs so if you wish to see it, please plan a trip this week. Next week we will be taking down and putting up the Quanah Parker Exhibit that tells the life history of the Comanche Chief.

This SATURDAY IS OUR FUNDRAISER AT THE LIPSCOMB SCHOOL. PLEASE CALL AND MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW. IT promises to be a great evening of entertainment, food, and fellowship.

HISTORICAL MUSING

We have received more family documents from the Moffatts family. One packet is the pen pal letters of Martha's with a gentleman in Barcelona, Spain. The letters are written in Spanish and none of us speak the language so we are in need of someone to translate the letters for us. Please call and we will be happy to deliver a copy of letters to you for translation.

We have also received a diploma from a nursing school in Indiana, 1905 for Louise Lenora Grier. Found in Higgins. We need information on who Louise is and did she practice in Lipscomb. Another mystery to solve.
