We are planning on having Joann's Blue Grass Band again this year. The day sounds very exciting please come enjoy the cider bring the kids and get in touch with the way the farmers in Wheat Ridge Handled a bumper crop of apples.
It was suggested we plant a field of corn at the Baugh House as a learning project for adults and kids in April next year. In order to do this we need to ask for a volunteer to plow the field with Horses or if we can't get them a tractor will do. I would be best to plow before winter hits. But early spring might have to do. Remember many people under 30 have not seen this done. When we plant corn we will be using old seed planters that we have at the museum, even kids can plant corn. Please call Claudia for further info. or to help on this project.
We had a special guest at our meeting Frances Lewis celebrated her 99th birthday July 20,2014. She has been to almost every meeting of the Society for the last few years.
Casandar Rushing was also a special guest and donated several items to the Historical Society for the Baugh House. Thank you it is those little things that make a historic house feel like a home.
The quilt display at the Baugh house is still up. We will be taking it down on Sept. 13th at the close of the day. So don't forget to call or drop by on the Sat. the 13th to see this display. Or you can make an appointment and see it before then just call the museum 303-421-9111 and talk to Jane.
The Baugh House is open the Second Sat of every month from 10:00 A.M until 2:00 P.M.
It has been suggested that if you love history or you want a little culture in your life you might try and visit every National Historic Site in the Metro Area in a year. You good start in Wheat Ridge we have 3 National Historic Sites and one State Historical Site. We also have two local Historic sites. Stop by the Historic Park for a list.
RECIPE FOR SEPT
From the White House Cook (Very old no date ) Interesting note from Publisher....Convenience has been studied in the make-up of the book. The type is large and plain; it is sewed by patent flexible process, so that when opened it will not close of itself, and it is bound in enameled cloth, adapted for use in the kitchen.
Pare them and cut lengthwise in very thick slices; wipe them dry with a cloth; sprinkle with salt and pepper, dredge with flour, and fry in lard and butter, a tablespoonful of each mixed. brown both sides and serve warm.
