To the Editor:
I want to thank all of you that visited the Wilson Brewer Park Museums & Visitors Center June 9. The Brewer/Groves cabin, Harmony Center School, Mulberry Center Church, Depot, and Depot Basement were all open for you to explore and enjoy the history of Webster City and Hamilton County.
At the schoolhouse, there were many costumes of pioneers and Indians that kids and adults alike could put on and have then their picture taken. The kids really enjoyed digging in the totes for the next outfit to put on. This is something we also did for Summer Nights. Have your family experience the feel of many kinds of furs, and try on lots hats and costumes. Bring your camera!
I want to thank Boy Scout Troop 17 for the Ice Cream Social in the courtyard. They had a very nice turn-out, and the folks enjoyed sitting at the picnic tables under the big shade trees. The boys put a lot of work into their events.
I also want to thank Joann Robb for making costumes, and the Community Theatre for sharing some of their costumes and props. Also, a huge "Thank You" to Scheif Baker, Denny Webb, Carolynn Miller, Darlene Dingman, Nancy Kayser, Bill and Joann Robb, and Darcey Follett for hosting in the buildings. They put in countless volunteer hours at the complex.
"Thank you" to Webster City Federal and Abens Realty for advertising this event on your signs. We really appreciate your support.
