WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
This pretty spring weather is allowing us to work on our two flower beds in front of the museum. The North one is our desert cactus bed and it is weeded very carefully, the South one has flowering vines and bushes. We started the weeding process last week and watered. So when we came in on Monday to write the column, we were flooded we all the rain. The rain was great and I hope it keeps it up. Every thing is green and the wild flowers are beautiful.
The museum staff is brainstorming on ideas for new exhibits, if you have any ideas, please share them with us. We need to develop new exhibits to rotate in some of our areas. We also would like to provide some summer programs.
Our traveling visitors are picking up with people stopping in en route to family reunions, school reunions, or just vacations. We love being to restroom stop. Remember us when you are planning ways to entertain out of town guests.
We received a post card announcing a Half Hour Documentary chronicling the untold story of the Desert Training Center, established in the Mojoave Desert by General George Patton to train one million soldiers to fight in World War II. Told through the personal experiences of WWII veterans, and supported with current and rare archival footage, the program offers a compelling account of the young men and women thrust upon the stage of world conflict. It is narrated by Peter Coyote. It will be broadcast on PBS starting in this month with screenings on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Check your local schedules for times.
