SCOTT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY
August 2016 Newsletter
By the time this is sent out, it may no longer be August! This month has just evaporated, along with all that lovely moisture we enjoyed earlier this summer. Once again, we survived the Dog Days of Summer. Did you know that is an actual time period from July 3rd to August 11th? Check that out on Google for more interesting data! Light showers this morning and pleasantly cool, but we need a good soaking rain, don’t we? Seems I always start the newsletter with the weather . . .
But there are other things to write about – for instance, our very interesting June Jaunt event. Around 60 guests enjoyed Deb Lawrence’s program on early Scott City hotels and boarding houses, complete with wonderful vintage photographs and priceless nuggets of information. As always, homemade cookies and punch helped make the day even more enjoyable.
The current temporary gallery exhibit has been well-received. Even our many visitors from other towns and countries have enjoyed “Main Street Scott City – The First 100 Years,” and the Dirty Thirties exhibit in the foyer. It’s always fun when we can put together an exhibit from our own amazing collection of photos and artifacts, but it’s also a challenge to come up with a new display every few months. If you have a collection you’d like to loan for a few weeks, please let us know.Read more: August 2016 Newsletter
