Museum of the Forgotten Warriors
Newsletter # 39 June 2021
We are coming up on Memorial Day weekend. As usual, we expect quite a few visitors. I want to catch you up on the rest of May at the Museum as I covered some of this month in the last newsletter.
Airmen from Beale AFB and the ROTC kids from Lindhurst High School were a great help. The SAYLove organization is scheduled to help with some projects on Saturday, the 29th. Mr. David West, the Nevada County VSO visited the museum. We loaned him a few things to make their lobby more veteran friendly.
The Native Sons of the Golden West held a BBQ. The members enjoyed touring the Museum. I was also able to go to Idaho to see family this month. Erin and Cedar are expecting a boy this summer, and I attended the baby shower. Thanks, guys for covering on the 22nd for me!
As usual, we will be open on Saturday from 9-1, closed Sunday, and open on Memorial Day, Monday the 31st from 9-3. Around 11 a.m. Memorial Day, we will place some new plaques on the walkway. A special one honoring Mr. Harlan Hatfield will be placed. He is missed.
The Sea Cadets helped with the placing of the flags on the road and the Boy Scouts are coming Monday late in the afternoon to help take them down. This is a big help to us.
We will hold a quarterly board meeting on Saturday, June 5, at 9 a.m. All are welcome.
I am undergoing hip replacement surgery on June 14 and will be grounded for a while. Doc says no driving for 4-6 weeks. I am not looking forward to no driving but need to get this hip fixed. So, the guys will be in charge for a while. Thanks in advance. Anyone who wants to volunteer on Saturdays will be appreciated.
A couple of ROTC boys are planning to come out this Saturday and want to start volunteering. We are looking forward to that.
Again, thanks to everyone who makes this possible. You know I couldn’t do it without you. We continue to receive memorabilia from folks. A couple of weeks ago a gentleman brought in several beautifully carved water buffalo horns. They were very delicate and unusual.
Thanks again and hope to see some of you this weekend.
