I am sorry I have not updated this earlier, now it is going to be long because a lot has happened in October.

Apple Cider days was a hugh success we had over 200 people during the day.  Some just visiting, some for the beautiful music, played by our favorite "Joann and friends Blue Grass Band".  Then the main attraction was  pressing cider in the 2 old fashioned apple cider presses.  As always lunch was delicious.  Chris Ross out did her self with home made Green Chile, biscuits and desert was delicious apples over biscuits with Ice Cream.  Sonja made old fashion Apple Fritters in the Log Cabin. The older kids Kyle and Jacob helped with the apples, Chris helped the little kids make corn cob pigs,  and our newest volunteer, Winston who is 10, was busy demonstrating the apple peeler, and arranging the bobbing for apples contest. Adults and kids all enjoyed this special new event

Toward the end of Oct. we were saddened by the theft of 72 arrowheads that were stolen from one of the library cases in the museum.  We are now keeping the doors Locked. So people will have to knock instead just walking in.  We also will be putting locks on the cases.  This is the first time in 40 yrs. that we have had this happen.  The man was about 5'10" with ear length brown hair, in his forties. He was wearing cargo shorts over his fleece stretch pants, navy blue, and he was riding a red bike. He seemed to be homeless and the same man was seen on Iris St. in someone's garage. He fled to the greenbelt. DO NOT BUY ANY ARROWHEADS FROM THIS PERSON OR ANYONE YOU DON'T KNOW!! CALL WHEAT RIDGE POLICE AT 303-237-2220. 

Nov 11 is our annual meeting members will be voting for Pres. V. Pres. Sec. and Tres. We will also be updating the 15 board members. 

Our Program will be presented by Ann Brinkman. She will be telling us about the 2013 Floods in Colorado.

 The meeting will be held in the Museum at 4610 Robb St. at 7:30 p.m.

Annual dues is due this month. If you have joined the Society  in the last 6 months you will automatically renewed for one year.  

Be sure and stop by this November and check out our new display honoring our World War I and II Service men and excellant display of memorablia.

A sad time in our history. But a proud legacy from all those who fought to guarantee us our Constitutional rights.  Thank you all brave guys that have fought in all our wars and conflicts over these many years.

If you are not here for Apple Cider Day, I am sorry outside of a little spit of rain it has been delightful.  JoAnn and the bluegrass band have been playing old fashion tunes since before lunch.  Chris has her famous Green Chili with homemade bisquits hot off the old wood stove, yum yum.

Sonja has apple flap jacks with sugar and cinimmon cooking on the wood stove in the log cabin.  Lots and lots of apples are being pressed in the two old vintage cider presses. Corn cob pigs are being made by the children.  And now people are bobbing for apples what a lovely day.  As I sit here in the Museum I hear the kids laughing and playing and the adults catching up with old friends and neighbors as they sit around picnic tables.  A really lovely day.  More to come later.
