Feb. 2016

Finally getting around to updating this. Our Meeting on Feb 9th was very productive.

Jane Harvey served Valentine Refreshments, gluten free brownies, strawberries and sugar cookies with tea. 

The quilting circle will meet again Feb. 24th 2016 from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  at the museum.

Watch for your membership books. You may have a notice of renewal stapled to yours; please respond as soon as possible. Any errors please call Jane at the museum at 303-421-9111. Also include your Email address on your check or call the museum.

We could use help attaching the Colorado Quilt Council information tags to the quilts. If you can do hand sewing, please call Jane at above number.

The Post Office is available for research please contact Jane for further information.

Fruitdale School is again on the forefront.  If you have Channel 8 it would be worth your while to watch the City Council rerun for Feb 8th. It is very informative and you may like to know where all the money is coming from to put 16 apartment units in the school.  Also the city is going to court to try and have the reverter clause removed.  Other proposals have been received for use of the building but were not even considered by the Housing Authority or the City Council. These proposals would not be nearly as expensive and would benefit all the citizens of Wheat Ridge.  The developer is calling the housing “Affordable” housing, which means whatever the market will bear.

Visitors to the museum have requested old pictures of the Reflections Auto Body building from the 1940’s when it was a Shamrock Station located at 44th and Pierson.  Please contact us if you have any such pictures.  We have very few pictures of 44th Ave in our Archives.

Also there were two Model A dealerships on West 38th Ave. If you know or have any information call Jane. We had a visitor that has dealership signs and he would like to have more information on them. The addresses were Bert’s Automotive at 38th and High Ct.  and M & M Model Dealership at 38th and Kendall.

We were made aware of a Historic House that has razed recently on 38th and Upham St.  This was the Lt.  Home of Homer Pierson, a Republican, who served with Ed Johnson, a Democrat, in the State of Colorado. The only time that this combination of the two parties serving together as Governor and Lt. Governor in Colorado. It is a shame that the City does not check with the Historical Society before a historic home is razed.Feb. 2016
