WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Well, Follett was the happening place this weekend. Our own volunteer, Georgia Couch led off the parade as the Parade Grand Marshall and we had three entries in the parade. We had a covered wagon and 1940 Ford and Mazda convertible that carried our Ms. Rip's Princess in the parade.
How many of you remember Rip's then Royal Cafe? Our princess wore one of the original uniforms.
Our volunteers had our research books, obituaries, and other information resources at the filling station for people to peruse.
The event was fun and very well attended. Happy Birthday Follett.

I forgot last week to thank the motorcycle club for using us as a stop in their ride. We appreciate their visit and hope they had a good time.

Pine Gregory's exhibit is up and very impressive. Stay tuned for his reception date but if you have a open day, come see it.

DATES TO REMEMBER: Sunday, October 22, at 2 pm Mel Griswold will present her program on The Great War and the Women of the Panhandle.
Saturday, November 4- Annual Fundraiser with a special talk about preservation efforts on the gulf coast.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

The following is a description of fall by Mr. Skaggs:
"That time of year is approaching when the winter season will be upon us, the leaves are beginning to turn and fall from the trees and the grasses have gotten a touch of old Jack Frost and turning to their golden yellow and rustic brown- it is a pretty picture to behold, but yet with it all, 'tis a gentle reminder that one of these days the air will be chilled with a northern blast that will create a stir among all citizens. The nights will be crisp and cold and the majority will be seeking the warm side of some friendly fire."
October 18, 1917.
A perfect description of today's weather.
