The projector is running and we are set for the Saturday, February 29, 2020 lecture on the Brose family home located south of Hansen. Shauna will talk about Robert Brose's involvement in the Rock Creek community and the cement home he built in 1905 that still stands today.

Our winter lecture series is garnering some enthusiasm and this weeks presenter will be Dave Heidemann, former TF Police Officer. Dave is interested in all things Winchester and will be sharing his knowledge of Winchester collectibles with us on February 22 at 1 o'clock. This is the first of Dave's presentations, the second is March 28th where he will talk about vintage fishing gear.
Fun day with Karen Hirai Olen on the 15th. Karen went to the Union School as her family farmed in the area. She was born in the Minidoka Relocation Camp, but the family was released before she was two years old, so she doesn't have a lot of actual memories of the camp. Her parents didn't speak about much, at least to the children, so Karen and her siblings were insulated from much of the experience.
Stop by at 1 o'clock to hear Jim Gentry's Overview of Twin Falls in the 1930's to the 1950's. Jim is always a popular speaker and typically the lectures are well attended, but we do have more chairs now and plenty of parking out back. Admission is free and open to the public, but please don't be late! Due to museum visitors arriving during lecture times we will not be open until after the program.
