Celebrating 20 Years at the Museum

And

90 Years as the Scott County Historical Society!

     Everyone agrees that 2020 was an unprecedented year – and surely everyone agrees that the second week of February 2021 was equally unprecedented!  Well, at least historically frigid temperatures we had not experienced since December 1990.  But, being Kansas, it wasn’t long before clear sunny days returned, and very quickly the first signs of spring popped up – bright green spikes of crocus and tulips.  But, being Kansans, we know better than to count Mother Nature out.  March can be full of surprises!

     With continuing lowering of corona virus cases throughout the land, perhaps we can begin to look ahead to special events this year.  After careful consideration, the historical society board decided to schedule the annual meeting of the society for Sunday, April 25th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Museum.  There will be a short business meeting, including election of board members, and Stephanie Fisher will bring the program, “The Story of Us in Maps.”  Refreshments will be served including a cake celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Scott County Historical Society. Please put this on your calendar now.  We look forward to seeing you!

     Since so few have seen the current exhibit in the temporary gallery, we will leave “America’s First Ladies” up until after the annual meeting.  This display was such fun to create and we want you to enjoy it before we focus on a major exhibit for the all-school reunion rescheduled now for June 4-6th.

     We have been saddened by the loss of too many faithful members in the past few weeks.  It has been very hard to say goodbye to Dona Dee Carpenter, Larry Huck, Marilyn Mealy, Arlene Cauthon, Kay Mohler, Dean Fairchild, Mary Armstrong and Gertrude Brown. These folks were dedicated volunteers and/or great supporters.  The families of Kay Mohler, Dean Fairchild and Mary Armstrong designated El Quartelejo Museum to receive their memorial gifts.  What a lovely way to honor those whose loyal support added greatly to the development of the museum.  We thank them, and we thank those of you whose gifts will be used in special ways to remember their devotion to the museum and the historical society.

ANNUAL MEETING – SUNDAY - APRIL 25 – 2:00 P.M.
