A lot is happening in our area and in the world that impacts us. The coronavirus that is spreading throughout the country is causing all of us to be more aware of our hand cleaning habits. We will increase our cleaning routines when we are here. The best advice, the CDC has given though is stay home if you can and limit any crowds. So stay safe.
Secondly, we have had a bad grassfire that has affected our Oklahoma neighbors. Please watch for any information on how we can assist these neighbors as they recover. Also I believe our volunteer departments went to assist with the fire and they will need our donations to recover their costs, also.

The museum is busy with our office activities. We are preparing our newsletter and our annual membership drive which we will be mailing out this month.


March 8 was International Women's Day and March is Women's History Month so I will be trying to feature some of Lipscomb county women. This week, however, I will review the History of The declaration of the month. In 1981, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) co-sponsored a joint Congressional resolution proclaiming a national Women's History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the celebration to a month, and March was declared Women's History Month.
The first Presidential Proclamation was written by President Jimmy Carter in 1980. The first proclamation issued to the nation recognized and celebrated women's historic achievements. President Jimmy Carter's message to the nation designated march 2-8, 1980 as National Women's History Week.
Use this month to recognize and remember Women in your communities that have made a difference.
