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!
The 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!
