WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
A town full of Lipscomb County and surrounding area citizens and other visitors filled the Lipscomb Schoolhouse for a fundraiser for the Lipscomb county volunteer fire departments. It was a donation event with boots located around the auditorium for people to place their cash, checks, etc. The entertainment for the night was a band called the "Buffalo & The Prairie Chips" and two special guests : Nathan McGuen and Natalie Gelman. The auditorium was near capacity and the music was great. I was unable to find out how much money was raised but hopefully we will hear the total soon.
It was a great night in Lipscomb.
Pam Haines' exhibit of Barbie dolls and her various adventures is complete and please plan to attend her reception on Sunday, August 13 at 2 pm.
Genealogy club met on Wednesday and I will report on our topics next week.
NEXT BINGO NIGHT IS JULY 22.
In the July 12th, 1917 issue of the Lipscomb Limelight, the paper encouraged the citizens of Lipscomb-Higgins-and Arnett to link together to form and build a Tri-Town Interurban Railway Line. In his efforts to encourage the citizens of these towns to build the line, he states : "What are you going to do? Are you going to sit and wait for some thing to happen? Wait for the rails to drop from Mars, the rolling stock from Jupiter and the telegraph line tumble from the moon or will you all get in line for an inter-urban? WILL LIPSCOMB SLEEP? WILL HIGGINS SLUMBER? WILL ARNETT REPOSE?
We know that eventually, a line was made through Higgins and Arnett
This issue also reported that Mrs. Finis Thrailkill was operated on for 'pendicitis' in a Higgins sanitarium. Doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances.
Have a good week.
