WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
I hope everyone stayed warm and safe with our little cold front. We did and so I am writing the column on Tuesday. It is the first of the month and time for changing our art exhibit. For March and April we are featuring Brady Smith. His paintings are colorful and a delight to examine. Stay tuned for his reception date.
We have two new cases and a new addition to our beauty salon area which we will have to change to the beauty salon/barber shop area. The new addition is a beautiful barber chair donated by Annalee and Hugh Barton. We are also planning new exhibits in the military and medical areas. If you are interested in these area and would like to assist in the research or construction of the exhibits, please join us on Wednesdays.
This week is the observance of Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is the most common day that is observed. Its name is derived from the placing of repentance ashes on the foreheads of participants to either the words: "Repent and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return". It was officially named Day of Ashes and always falls 40 days before Easter beginning Lent when some Christian faiths prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, giving up of sinful habits, and spiritual discipline.
It is also the beginning of Madri Gra in New Orleans and a favorite destination for people trying to escape from the winter cold and snow.
