WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
A busy week with Board meeting, the Plains Trail meeting, and a WWI program on Sunday. Our board meeting was on Wednesday and well attended. We discussed ongoing projects including two museum activities : Bingo and Genealogy club. (Dates at bottom of column). Discussion were held on an exhibit of the exercise equipment Inch by Inch. This was a passive exercise program run by Betty Rice and Jean Weis in Higgins. Later the equipment was donated to the museum and located at the school. Most of the pieces are no longer functional and the board approved disposal and bringing the signage and one table over to the museum and making an exhibit.
Discussion on the gift shop continued with recommendations for the t-shirts and Christmas ornaments and our self published books.
There was recommendations to update the cemetery book and the military exhibit.
Sunday we had a good crowd for the presentation by Mel Griswold on WWI. She presented a summary of the activities of the Panhandle men and women during the war. She discussed the various program required of women on canning, rations, etc. One program required the knitting of socks for the soldiers. She provided a list of all the panhandle men who served in WWI. The list is a wall exhibit at the Panhandle Plains Museum until December. The program was well received with a good discussion following her program.
