Here it is September a very wet September indeed.

Our Sept. meeting was held on the 9th.  It was a very productive meeting.  

Jane Harvey introduced herself, she is our new part-time employee. She keeps the Historic Park and the Baugh House (by appt. only) open every Tues. through Fri. from 10am until 3pm.  Mike Graham is our volunteer tour guide on Saturdays from 10:00 to 3:00. Please stop in for a tour and to say Hi!  We are asking $2.00 per person for tours.

Remember you can join the Society for a mere $10.00 per year. If you join before Nov. 1st your next years dues will be on Nov.1st 2015. You can also be a life member for $100.00 WHAT A DEAL!

APPLE CIDER DAYS

OCT. 11TH, SATURDAY FROM 10:00 A.M. UNTIL 4:00 P.M. Bring your washed apples and clean jugs you will be pressing your own cider.  We are asking $3.00 a bag or bushel. 

 Lunch will be served in the soddy for $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for kids under 12.  We need help with the lunch if you can help with the cooking please call Claudia at 303-467-0023

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.  

Fried Cucumbers

 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.

August already we made it through the stormy July days. Our lawns are thick and green.  This is why we love Colorado. "If you don't like the weather just wait it will change."

HERITAGE DAY IS THIS DAY AND WE ARE HIGHLIGHTING SOME OF OUR ANTIQUE QUILTS AT THE BAUGH HOUSE ON 44TH AND ROBB ST. WE WILL BE OPEN FROM 10:00 A.M UNTIL 3:00 P.M.  IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN QUILTS WE HAVE EXAMPLES FROM THE CIVIL WAR TO PRESENT DAY.  MOST OF OUR OLDER QUILTS ARE HAND MADE.  

WE WILL BE DISPLAYING THEM IN THE BAUGH HOUSE A FEW WE HOPE WILL BE ON THE PORCH.  PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND OTHER ARTISTS. WE ARE ASKING A $2.00 DONATION.

We are pleased to announce we now have an employee the city has hired part time.  Her name is Jane Harvey.  She will be keeping the musuem open Tuesdays through Friday. The Baugh House by appointment. Stop by and say hello, you will find her as delightful as we do.  Welcome Jane. 

Update on Fruitdale School.  The Housing Authority gave the building to the Rocky Mtn Phoenix School on which is located on the South Frontage Road and Miller St.  We are thrilled.  We would have liked to see the building used as a cultural art center however, a school is what it was intended for so we are pleased that the Authority made such a wise decision. Please check the Denver Post Wheat Ridge Hub this Thursday August 7th for an article about the building.
