WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

A quiet week at the museum but Wednesday work day was full of everyone doing a project . It is surprising the amount of work that gets done on Wednesday . The newsletter is almost ready for the printer , Ann has received responses to our loan renewal request. We thank everyone for responding so promptly. If you haven't returned your loan agreement please do so. These are important to keep us in compliance with our policy and with museum standards.

Maxine Jones exhibit is up and her paintings are wonderful. If you appreciate paintings of horses, this exhibit is a must. I am told that horses are very difficult to paint and Maxine did expertly. We thank everyone for loaning their paintings to us for this exhibit. The reception in her honor will be April 24th at 2 pm. Please plan to visit the exhibit or the reception.

We are assessing the original stage curtain of the Lipscomb school for preservation and restoration. If you have any photographs of the curtain when is use, we would love to have a copy for our project.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

Last Thursday was St.Patrick's Day, the day set aside by the Irish people to commemorate the boy named Patrick who was a missionary in Ireland . His most famous feat was forcing the snakes out of the entire country. The leprechaun is the symbol of for St.Patrick's day . The word “leprechaun is from a mixture of Luchorpan or small person and a word meaning one-shoemaker . As the symbol , he is a smiling, merry little elf. However, legend tells us that he is always grumpy, untrustworthy and very tricky. Legend tells of a pot of gold that is buried by the leprechan.

The following is an Irish blessing for your week to come:

May the road rise up to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rain fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
