WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
A busy week with two evening events and one Sunday afternoon event. It started with a meeting of the county republicans to meet the candidates for County Judge and commissioner. It was very well attended with over 95 people present and the questions were interesting and relative to the positions.
The next event was on Saturday evening with our monthly Bingo night. It was a small group but everyone had a bingo or two.
The last event was Sunday afternoon with our annual reception for the Children's art and the presentation of awards. It is always nice to see the students showing off their art to their families and especially to receive recognition for their efforts. If you haven't seen the art there is still some on display. We appreciate the parents and teachers for encouraging the students participation in the exhibit.
I will be traveling to Austin this week to learn about the states plans for the commemoration of 100th anniversary of WW1 so we can plan our exhibits and programs. If you have a relative that serve in this war and have their story, please share it with us.
On February 28, 1918, a group of county officials and citizens of Lipscomb journeyed to Longwood, Texas to celebrate the founding of this town in Lipscomb County. The county superintendent Sewell presided over the event.
We do not have a record of a town named Longwood. If you have information on where it was, please share the information with us.
