Garden club to host program

Published 10:57 am Monday, June 1, 2009

When approaching the museum last Sunday, beautiful music was coming from the piano in the parlor. I approached the music and found Jean Kinley at the piano and she has talent to be admired.

The Appraisal Fair was a great success with many antiques and favorite pieces being appraised. It was planned and under the director of Debbie Rogers.

This has been a busy time with the IHS Class of 1950 meeting for lunch and visiting with our classmates. It was an enjoyable time.

Graduating from the schools, including kindergarten, was an exciting event.

The Memorial Day parade was as usual very outstanding along with the Historical Society feeding those who participated including the re-enactors. This practice was started by Lou Ann Blagg and Irene Lane many years ago.

Marriages and anniversaries were also on the calendar.

Planting vegetables in our gardens and planting flowers in our yards kept us busy.

Summertime means vacation time. There is plenty going on around Lawrence County now that school is out. We all have plans of our own and hope you do also.

We still will welcome new docents. If you are interested in learning about helping in the museum, stop by Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Our next program will be June 27 at 1 p.m. presented by the Garden Club. I promise it will be a very good program.

Historical Fact: The Presidents and the Bible

Calvin Coolidge, the 30th president of the United States, once said, “In this book will be the found the solution of all of the problems of the world.” George Washington added the prayer “So help me, God,” to his inauguration oath. Then he reverently stooped and kissed the Bible, which had been used in the oath.
