And all at once, it is summer!

Not sure where the time goes. The quilters meet every Friday during the winter, and then all at once it is May and the quilters stop for the season. The museum opens (everyday until September from 1:00pm – 5:00pm). We notice more people visiting the grounds at the Historical Village to see the buildings, look at old photos, enjoy a picnic on the grounds or visit with friends. The lilacs bloom next to the old Schoolhouse. The new memorial plaque has gone up in the Library. And, of course, there are wonderful items in the Fewkes Store to purchase including quilts, scrubbies, books and postcards.

Two events at the Historical Village this summer include the Eureka Montana Quilt Show on August 6 and then Shakespeare in the Parks doing “Twelfth Night” sponsored by Sunburst Arts and Educationon August 18 at 6:00pm. Both events are a joy to experience, so we hope you are able to attend.

About tvh56

I mostly live in Eureka, Montana and write two blogs. One is for the Tobacco Valley Board of History, a group composed of the most remarkable older women who quilt weekly to raise funds to maintain the Historical Village museum and grounds. I had to capture their stories with words and photos. And when I began a traveling bookstore as a small business, well, it only made sense to write about that too.
