WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Another active week with visitors from out of state and core team working on collections and archive information. We now have eight volunteers that come on Wednesdays to work on our collections and projects. We also have a senior community service grant that funds a worker for four days a week to assist in keeping the museum open and to assist our county funded volunteers. This is what allows us to keep the museum open five days a week. So thank your commissioner when you see them for assisting the museum.

We are in between exhibits this week with the student art disappearing and Doug Ricketts arriving. He has promised us a totally different exhibit than his furniture and past efforts. It should be exciting and we are looking forward to it.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In the March 2, 1916 issue of the Lipscomb Limelight, they reported that the Glazier Lumber company, Abe Green, manager has the contract for supplying materials, both cement and lumber, for the new court house to be built in Lipscomb. The contractor is Mr. W.M. Rice of Amarillo, who expects to begin work within a short time. $25,000 bonds were voted for this building which promises to be a credit to not only Lipscomb, but will add to the beauty and substantiality of public buildings in the North Panhandle.
