WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott


MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

A lot of meetings this week. The Lipscomb County Historical Commission and Wolf creek Heritage Museum Board met on Wednesday, July 25. They set October 6 for our annual fundraiser so stay tuned for further details. In other business, it was reported that the expansion of the military exhibit will be taking place as soon as the new case is delivered. This will require some rearranging so if you come to visit and we redirect you to a different door you will know why.

I also attended our Texas Plains Trail Board meeting in Borger on July 18. It was a routine meeting with no major actions occurring. The Texas Historical Commission held its quarterly meeting in Amarillo on July 27th. It was interesting to hear about all the state wide activities that the historical commission oversees from historical houses to cemeteries to the multiple types of markers. Of interest to us was the approval of the county's application for courthouse preservation funds. So when you see Judge Smith or one of our commissioners congratulate them and we look forward to seeing our courthouse redo to its original look.

We held our monthly Bingo night on Saturday with a nice crowd and almost everyone had a least one Bingo. There was a lady from Follett who will remain nameless that won numerous times. This event is fun so remember to mark your calendar and come and join us. THE FOURTH SATURDAY OF THE MONTH AT 6:30 PM.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In the August 1, 1918 issue of the lime light, it was reported that the Willing Workers Class of the Union church Sunday School had completed one-hundred "Housewives" to be put in Comfort Kits for the soldiers. The "Housewives" consisted of a strip of white outing 4" by 12" hemmed, to which is tacked securely six khaki buttons, six bone buttons, card khaki thread, card white thread, 12 safety pins, eight sharp needles, card hooks and eyes, two blanket pins. They also knitted fourteen sweaters. The class motto was Servamus (we serve)... There were 12 girls in the class.
