The fireworks are over and now we are having a very wet and beautiful July. The Baugh House on 44th and Robb was open for visitors on the 2nd Sat. We had a very interesting visitor who used a metal detector to check for artifacts.  We kept everything. Nothing of importance was found. A modern hinge and some pennies.  

The museum has been quite active this summer.  We have had at least 2 -4 visitors every Friday.  Jane, Charlotte and myself have been going through pictures and picture collections and putting them in note books so they are easily accessible for people looking for certain photos.  We are also working on sorting and cataloging the enormous amount of donations for research in the library.  Thanks Jane, Dave, Debra and Michael for all your help it is finally beginging to look like we may get finished.

MARK THE 2ND SATURDAY IN AUGUST ON YOUR CALENDARS!

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.

Remember the Historic Park is open every Friday from 10 until 3. We hope to hire a part-time employee by August to keep the museum open everyday including Saturday.  I will post the announcemenmt on here when we have done this.

June is here with the birds singing, Iris blooming and the weather in Colorado still unpredictable. 

Our annual Pioneer Pot luck Picnic is June, 10th at 6:00 p.m bring a dish for ten we will be eating outside or in case of rain in the soddy.  We will be discussing the status of Fruitdale School and our paid Tour Guide and new hours at the Historic Park.  Please plan to attend as this meeting will be very informative.  

The May Festival was very successful lots of New People came to enjoy the festivities and the Appraisal Fair. Thanks to Joann and the Folk band, Eron Johnson of Eron Johnson Antiques and a special thanks to Debra Bollig for her efforts in advertising the event.  And taking wonderful pictures.  Please check our Facebook account for the pictures.  I can no longer post pictures to this web site. (working on the problem).

A very nice lady came to the festival and spoke with Jane Harvey sadly she did not get her name.  She was interested in starting a Quilting Bee in Wheat Ridge.  We have some ideas for her and would love to be involved.  We  are asking her to please call Claudia at 303-467-0023 to discuss this exciting prospect and for more some information.

The dedication for the bench in honor of our beloved Louise Turner was held May 31st at Louise Turner Park.  A wonderful turn out was present for the occasion.  Wheat Ridge United Neighborhoods hosted the event and provided the lovely refreshments. Many happy and lovely memories were shared. Jerry Turner and his daughters were present and enjoyed chatting with eveyone.  We miss Louise as does all that had the privilage to know her.  Her legacy of involvement and love for the City of Wheat Ridge and her love of all God's creatures will be cherished by all who knew her.   

We will not have meetings in July or August but will start up again in September.  Heritage days will be held the Second Saturday in August at the Baugh House.  We hope to display several of our antique quilts. Please come and see the restored cabin and farm house. A simple picnic will be provided at a nominal price.

We have very many old Recipes that we thought our readers would enjoy.

Let us know if you tried them and what you thought

Taken from Larkin Housewives Cook Book printed copyrighted, 1916 

Nut Steak without meat:

Put into a mixing bowl one cup of walnut meats coarsely chopped, two cups of bread-crumbs, one-half teaspoon each of salt and dried sage, and a very little pepper.  Mix dry ingredients together, add one egg slightly beaten and four tablespoons of milk.  Shape as you would Hamburg Steak and saute' in frying pan with a small amount of fat. Serve with Tomato sauce.  Mrs J. F. Hillman, Trenton N.J.
