This week at the Museum

Before I start with this week, let's recap last week.

1. Two successful days of Pioneer Day field trips at Old Settlers Association. We had well over 500 students over two days of hands-on fun!

2. Recuerdos exhibit opening on Friday night. We had a full house, and everyone had a great time.

3. Pioneer Day at OSA in Round Rock. This year, we had a couple hundred more guests than last year. You can't beat that!

What's on tap this week, you ask?

Mickie and the education volunteers have field trips at the Museum all this week. Right now, third graders from Village Elementary are here touring the Museum, the downtown and the courthouse. Tomorrow, Mickie and the gang will be at San Gabriel Park for an all-day Civil War-themed field trip. Pickett Elementary third graders will be here on Thursday, Williams Elementary third graders tour the Museum on Friday, and then on Saturday the local Girl Scouts will be here all day for Victorian tea parties.

As for me, I submitted a grant application this morning. I have an advisory group meeting this afternoon in Austin, and a chuckwagon committee meeting this evening. Tomorrow night is The Salon at Wildfire.

Next Tuesday, May 18, is Books for Texans Book Club held at 7pm at the Georgetown Public Library (second floor, Hewlett Room). We hope you can join us, and talk about The Kings of Texas: The 150-Year Saga of an American Ranching Empire by Don Graham.

See you soon!
