The event we held at the Butler Museum Saturday April 16th was a huge success.
It ran from 4-7 p.m.,and we had a little over 300 people attend. I would just like to say that I am so pleased to be apart of the Clear Fork Valley.
I would personally, along with other board members like to thank the community for their support in coming out. There was alot of time put into getting this facilitated. We as a board are volunteers trying to bring the history of our area into focus, and make it come to life.
It made all the time and effort we put in well worth it, to see all who turned out. The students we had that portrayed people of our areas past did a phenomenal job as well. They too put a lot of time and effort in not only learning about their persons of interest, but also putting together clothing that was period appropriate.
A special thanks goes out to all the parents of the students for letting them perform for us and for their time in helping them prepare.
Mr. Hal McCuen would have been very pleased with the way these students portrayed not only him, but all other people of our ares past. The generosity of these businesses made this event what I would call a tremendous boost for relationships between young and old alike.
Thanks for the donations made to the Historical Society from Smith’s Body Shop, Mansfield Plumbing Products, Weekley Chrysler Dodge Jeep,and Ducky’s Pub & Grill. We also had gift certificates donated by the Wiffletree Restaurant, Tall Timber Inn, 5 Points Drive Inn, Dollar General, and Bill’s Barber Shop. It’s because or your support that our doors stay open and we can do events like this for generations to come.
