It’s been a while since our last update here at the Crockett County Museum but as the saying goes “history never gets old”.
The museum hosted its Membership Drive and Appreciation Dinner on September 20, 2016, at the Ozona Youth Center. Michael Barr was our guest speaker for this event. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history and government from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA in history from Texas State University. He was a teacher and a principal at Fredericksburg, Johnson City, and Gatesville. He taught at Austin Community College, Temple College, and Baylor University. His stories have appeared in Old West, True West, Texas Highways, and Southwestern Historical Quarterly. He is the author of Rope Burns and Lead Poisoning – a collection of Old West stories. His latest book is Remembering Bulldog Turner (Texas Tech University Press), an INDIEFAB award winner in the sports category. His stories have been featured on “The Sounds of Texas” radio program hosted by Tumbleweed Smith. His “Hindsights” column appears in the Fredericksburg Standard and Radio Post, the Johnson City Record-Courier, and in TexasEscapes.com – an online magazine. He and his wife Ginger live in Fredericksburg, Texas.
Sandy Glover was the winner of our Annual Wool and Mohair Show raffle on December 3, 2016 and we also participated in the Chamber of Commerce Night on the Town December 8, 2016.
