VISITORS AT THE MILITARY ROAD MUSEUM
On Thursday, March 7, a group called the Welcome Neighbor Club
of Greater Fort Smith made a visit to the Military Road Museum of Lavaca.
According to their Facebook page, their group is “a non-profit
group of ladies who enjoy having a good time. Bowling, book club, bunco,
brunches, golf, and just plain friendships!!! And an annual Christmas charity
auction to feel good about ourselves!” And what a group of ladies they are!
leader of the pack, if there is one, called to make arrangements to make sure
we would be open. But they also made a
lunch date at Steffey’s Pizza, so one would wonder if they came for the pizza
or to see the museum at all! The twelve
ladies that came were fascinated by our local history and
contributions to the area. The women had
plenty of questions and reminisced about their younger days as they were
reminded by artifacts in the displays.
Several of the ladies found an old songbook in our collection and had no
problem joining together singing a song to the rest of us. They sang beautifully too!
Your group is welcome to visit the Military
Road Museum in downtown Lavaca also.
Give Jack a call at 479-739-2482 to make arrangements! It was a great pleasure to visit with the
ladies of this group. I imagine they
have fun where ever they meet!
