WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
A quiet week with our core group busy sorting and cleaning different exhibits, etc. We are also getting ready for Bingo Night this Saturday at 6:30. I hope you are planning to come. We still need prizes so clean out your closets and bring us good stuff.
We have a new item in the gift shop and have only four bottles left. It is Ben's Bees local honey. Word of mouth has made it a great seller.
The photographs by Terry Anne Gerken Henderson are being received with much awes and "how did she get that shot?" Plan to come and see her exhibit. It is up till June 30th
Her reception will be Sunday, June 11th at 2 p.m. A program by Otis Shearer will begin a 3 pm.
Remember our first Genealogy club meeting will be June 7 at 1 pm in our research room.
MAY 20th was Armed Forces Day in the United States falling at the end of Armed Forces Week which begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May.
First observed on May 20, 1950, the day was created on August 31, 1949, to honor Americans serving in the five U.S. military branches- U.S. Army, U. S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air force and U.S. Coast Guard- following the consolidation of the military services in the U.S. Department of Defense. It was intended to replace the separate Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Days, but the separate days are still observed, especially within the respective services.
The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and air shows. The U.S. longest continuously running Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Bremerton, WA.
President Donald Trump proclaimed Armed Forces Day on May 19, 2017.
Honor your local member of the Armed Forces this week with a card or letter.
