Pioneer Museum to Have Veteran’s Day BBQ
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 • Posted October 20, 2011

Have you visited Blanco Pioneer Museum yet? Well, if you haven’t, you need to take a stroll through the exceptional World War II exhibit in the museum. You will find quite a history lesson. We had a family come in this past weekend that makes it all worth our time and work - a mother, father and their two sons. One of the boys, a 4th grader, loved it. He could tell us things, as he told us he watches the History Channel all the time. You will see anything from books and pictures to uniforms, flags, swords, telegrams, food ration stamps, etc. A surprise to the townspeople are the pictures and story of the USS Blanco County ship. It was actually in service from 1946 to 1974. A piece of equipment from the ship is also on display.

The museum is having a Veteran’s Day celebration on Friday, November 11. The barbecue dinner will be from 6:00–8:00, followed by a live auction and street dance from 8:00-11:00. There will be two miniature horses donated by Jane Macon, $50 gift certificate from Super S, and a gift basket from Peach Basket in Fredericksburg. What an educational and fun time to be had by the whole family. All this for only $6 for the dinner and dance. Tickets are now on sale. Give us a call at 833-5774 or come by the museum.

Blanco Pioneer Museum regular hours are Friday thru Sunday 11:00–3:00. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
