WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
Well, I am back from a quick trip to Lubbock. The Trails Plains is in the process of hiring a new executive director. I was on the panel that interviewed candidates last week and it was interesting listening to various viewpoints on tourism and our various areas. I will keep you posted on the new director and will be touring her through our area once she/he is selected.
We are also participating with a regional group that developed day trips for our area. We meet monthly.
If you are wondering if these groups help our area, the answer is yes. We see them and others come by and leave us notes. We also get geocachers that find our caches and they notify us via email.
The museum is busy with various projects including our new building (finding grants), newspapers, and research for others. THIS IS LAST WEEK OF OCTOBER, Georgia will be directing us Wednesday with the November Sports Exhibit.
REMINDER: OUR ANNUAL FUNDRAISER IS NOVEMBER 3,2012 AT 6:30 PM AT THE SCHOOL. IT IS BAR-B-QUE WITH J.W. BEESON ENTERTAINING. PLEASE JOIN US. TICKETS AVAILABLE FROM BOARD, MUSEUM OR AT THE DOOR. SEE YOU SATURDAY.
The following poem was sent to us from the Hutchinson County Museum in Borger. It was found in their archive.
By the Lipscomb Fourth & Sixth Grade
Lets write a poem about our town
Our teacher said one day,
About the pioneers who came
To live and work and play.
Who came to stay in this nice place,
So many years gone by,
To build their homes and farm the land,
With not a groin nor sigh?
They must decide just what should be,
In this small prairie home.
A general store, a church, and school,
All named for Abner Lipscomb.
As time went on and each year passed,
More people came to dwell,
To make the laws and choose a sheriff,
And even build a jail.
Through fire and floods, through dust and storms,
Their courage never waned.
No thing could take this home from them,
This town that they had gained.
Almost a hundred years have gone,
Since first they chose its name.
We love the town as much as they,
Although it's not the same.
