SCOTT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY NEWSLETTER

November 2018

The calendar pages are flipping past like a movie set, designed to show the rapid passage of time.  It didn’t help to have that blast of winter on October 14th – ice and snow which left many trees and shrubs completely bare in 24 hours.  It’s been a weather yo-yo ever since.  A bit challenging, even by Kansas standards.  But we still have two special events on tap this year and you won’t want to miss either of them.

Quilts of Valor will return to honor several area military veterans on Saturday, November 10th.  These ceremonies are so memorable, especially for the veterans being honored for their service, and for their families.  The local arm of the national organization of Quilts of Valor provides beautifully handmade quilts to each of those nominated for recognition – quilts that require hours of loving labor at no small expense.  Please put this special ceremony on your calendar: Saturday, November 10th at 2:00 p.m. at El Quartelejo Museum.
