The Veterans Day celebrations have come and gone but we will continue to celebrate our veterans of all ages. When you visit the Blanco Pioneer Museum, you will see pictures and names of so many WWII veterans from right here in Blanco. If you have not visited the museum, you are missing an amazing experience. You can even visit for free, as we just take donations to help support this wonderful museum. We are getting tours from out of town and we would be happy to set up tours for our own townspeople if you have a group who would like to visit.
If you missed the museum’s barbeque dinner this past Friday night, you missed some of the best BBQ ever, per some of the attendees. We appreciate Dennis and Kelly Moore, who prepared and cooked the brisket – Dennis came to our rescue once more. Tommy Vallone cooked the sausage, and tended and cut up all the meat with the help of Darwin Shipp, Jr. Super S really came through with help on the food; they are a great supporter of this town. Marcy Westcott greeted people at the gate as they purchased tickets and then Barbara Dowdy was up there serving, along with Debbie Homeier and Ami Fraus (Carl’s sister), and we even got Carl Homeier behind that serving line. Phyllis Edmondson also served food. These were a few who just went to work when they saw we needed help. We really appreciate the city’s assistance with various things, and our directors and volunteers who worked very hard. We hope you enjoyed the pictures in paper last week by Charles Willgren from the Blanco County News and we really appreciate Jan and Jon Brieger for the use of the barn across from the museum. It was such a great place to hold something like our event and they were very gracious to help us. Our museum group is so small that, without the help of others pitching in, we could not have made it through the evening.
Be sure and visit the Blanco Pioneer Museum on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from 11:00-3:00 to see the wonderful WWII exhibit. I believe you will be surprised and really enjoy your visit.
