The hot part of summer is upon us and we here at the museum are making plans for August. The reunion event netted us more volunteers and members to the historical society that ready to get to work.
Patti Hurley is working with Marian Posey on the clothing and other textiles. More newspapers are ready to be sent up to Boise for scanning and digitization. The yard and flowers always need attention and the outside equipment displays need repair and cleanup. If anyone is interested in helping with these or other chores, give us a call or stop by.
A good number of former students from the Union School attended the reunion held on July 21. In 1968 the independent school districts consolidated and students were sent to Twin Falls or Filer. The turnout was impressive and it was a lot of fun.
Saturday, July 20 at 1 o'clock, Darrell Buffaloe will give a presentation on old bank notes. The museum recently received one as a donation and the subject of how and why banks printed their own money was of great interest. Admission is free and the presentation will last about an hour.
