It’s hard to believe that we are already in September. The summer went by incredibly fast. September to November is booking up quickly with events, and we can’t wait to share what all we have booked.
Gary Ward Western Art
This week, Gary Ward is setting up his artwork (shown in top right photo). On Tuesday, Sept. 10, 5–7 pm, the museum will host an artist reception. Be sure to stop by to meet Gary and enjoy his Western-themed paintings and sculptures. Light snacks and drinks will be served. Later in November, Gary will speak at a luncheon presentation. We will put out that luncheon date as soon as we get it scheduled.
Volunteers and Membership
On Sunday, Sept. 22, the museum board of directors will express their appreciation to our members and volunteers by providing a tasty meal. I am preparing a brief report on what the museum has accomplished over the previous year, and what we have planned for next year. Postcards are going out this week to our volunteers and members. Seating is limited, so make sure to RSVP as soon as possible.
Daughters of the American Revolution
The October monthly meeting of the Daughters of the American Revolution is arranged to meet at the museum on Thursday, Oct. 10. I have been asked to speak to the ladies about my service in Iraq. I plan to share many entertaining stories, photographs, and life lessons learned from that experience.
The Hemphill County Historical Commission is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
This year, the Canadian Arts Alliance has chosen the museum for the location of their yearly mystery dinner community theatre. The cast members are learning their lines and preparing their characters. Two shows are scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12, and one matinee show on Sunday, Oct. 13. Show times are still to be determined.
The Gallery Room is available to rent for functions. We also have tables, chairs, and a large outdoor tent available to rent as well. Call us at 806.323.6548 for reservations.
