MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

HAPPY NEW YEAR. We are back to work and looking forward to a great year. The art work for the Student Art Show is coming in and it looks like it will be another great one.
We are also planning a new year of programs, bingo nights, genealogy sessions, and other entertaining events. Stay tuned for our announcements.

Georgia has gone shopping while on vacation and will be developing a doll exhibit. We have received some wonderful dolls and will feature them in this new case.
We have upgraded our computer in the office and I am having to reinvent my files so my emails may be slow for a while.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In January, 1918, there was apparently an overpopulation of rabbits in Lipscomb County, so much so, that they formed two teams for a rabbit hunt. The first team had as its captain, Art Turner, second team caption was Alex Barton. The Turner team hunted the east side of the county and captured 658 rabbits, Mr. Barton's team hunted the west side and captured 558. Another 300 were not counted with the hunt total of 1216 kills for the day. The event ended with a dinner supplied by the Red Cross ladies, the Community Club, and other lady organizations from the county with over 350 people attending.

Lipscomb also started 1918 with a new Telephone company, Northwestern Telephone company out of Shattuck, Okla. Started service on Jan. 1.
