June 2016

 Happy Birthday to Charlotte Whetsel who is our Vice President she will turn 82 on June 1st.

If you missed the May Festival we are sorry, Even though the weather was not as wonderful as we had hoped, it was just plain cold, the celebration continued as always.

Lunch was scrumptious and was enjoyed by all.

JoAnn's Blue Grass Band played all day and as usual was a delightful addition. Thank you musicians you make are events extra special.

We had a lovely lady with her daughter and another gal, sorry I can't remember names, who brought hand knitted and crocheted items plus some lovely baby and lap quilts for sale.   I will check the roster and correct this later. If you would like to get a head start on gift giving these items would be lovely. 

Claudia Worth demonstrated  bobbin lace and crocheting and interested a little girl in learning to crochet  if others would like to learn she will be teaching at the museum on Fridays during the summer. You may contact Jane at the museum 303-421-9111 for more information.

 The May Pole dance was wonderful and was wrapped twice before it began to rain. Beautiful Job from all who participated.We apologize if we closed early but almost everyone left and the rain and cold was just to much for us. 

The Baugh House a National Register site will be open from 10-1 p.m. You don't want to miss seeing this fantastic restoration by Bill Bailey, of a 1859 log cabin surrounded by a 1900's farm house. The site is located on the North East Corner of 44th and Robb St. just South of the Historic Park where the National Register "Old Soddy" is located.

Jane and Dave have put a lovely display in the museum of Old farm tractors in the museum. (mini ones). Fun to check out. Don W. will be on hand to explain how each was used.  An old fashion Barn and Water Tower part of our collections are also on display.

The museum will be open as usual Tuesday - Friday from 10 am until 3 pm as during the summer months. Tours for parties of 10 or more will be available with a week or 2 advance notice we need this time to make sure we have enough volunteers to give a worthwhile over view of what life was like when our for-fathers crossed the prairie to settle this beautiful State of Colorado.   Please be prepared to pay $2.00 Per Person in advance. We accept cash and checks only.   (These funds are used to run and buy supplies for the museum and our vast archives of Wheat Ridge, Jefferson County Schools, Jefferson County and Colorado History.

WHAT HAPPEN TO OCTOBER!  I remember seeing it flying by maybe that was the witch I saw In the sky that night.

Oh well Oct was a delightful fun month.  Cider days was well attended by lots of people. We had few apples because the early spring frost killed the apple buds. No matter people bought apples and thanks to our new favorite store in Wheat Ridge, “SPROUTS” on 38th and Kipling, who donated a whole box of delicious Granny Smith apples, our cider was delicious. Thanks Sprouts

Joann’s Pickup band played under the canopy and entertained all with their wonderful old fashion tunes and Blue Grass music. People were kicking up their heels on the grass and having a great ole time.

Mike Graham and his Mom were in charge of lunch Mike served Brats off the Grill donated by Al Frank They were perfect nice and juicy. Our little apple rose tarts were a hit. Planning something special for next year. Mike you can cook my Brats anytime! Kyle Ross, Jacob and Chris Worth set up canopies brought out the cider press and made themselves useful throughout the day. Thanks guys.

The White Family had a gathering of all the Clan at the Historic Park and reminisced about the happy days of growing up on the farm and retelling stories they heard and remembered from the “old Days” They brought a lovely Scrapbook which many people enjoyed looking through, we enjoyed having them and hope they come back again.

Winston sang songs while Claudia Callas joined on her penny whistle and wowed everyone with his talent.  What a neat kid Mom Good Job.

A lovely day was had by all.

The Wheat Ridge Quilt Circle arranged to have all the museums quilts documented for the Colorado Quilt Councils project.  They have documented over 65,000 quilts so far. We our proud to have our quilts included.  I plan on contacting them and seeing if my grandmother’s crazy quilt is included in their archives.  If a quilt is stolen or lost, and it has been documented you may be able to find it.
