WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

A nice crowd of over 40 visitors came to view Cody Graves leather works and visit with him and his family. A nice group of children got the train to work on one line so that kept them busy while the adults visited.
The preparations for the moving of the courthouse offices is underway. The old school house rooms are being cleared out to make room for various offices. The first copy machine for Lipscomb County was moved in at least four parts to the museum on Tuesday. It will be located in the new addition by the farm exhibit and tractor. We are also adding the first switchboard for the Sheriff dept. to the communication exhibit. There are several other items that we will have on display that we have been storing at the school.

We will keep you up to date as progress is made. There will be rescheduling and rearranging but in the end we will have our historical County Courthouse anew and beautiful.
Reminders: Our annual fundraiser is October 13 at 6:30 in Higgins at the multipurpose building by the football field. The theme for this years event is "Mystery Dinner Theatre" so call and reserve your tickets now' $25 /person.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In reviewing Judge Tarbox's letters, I am gaining a new respect for their many functions and the multiple types of request that citizens ask of their elected officials. This letter was written to the judge in 1965 replying to an application for employment with the Liquor Control Board. He writes: I am sure that a position as inspector with the Liquor Control Board would be more exciting, and in time you could pick the part of Texas you would want to live in. I have talked with Mr. Duke regarding your letter. We both would be willing to give you any type of recommendation that would be of assistance. Please advise us what we could do. So job recommendations are added to the list of duties. More to come.
