President Polly says, "Hundreds and Hundreds!"

Hi all,

I wanted to remind you that the Tigard Historical Society is hosting a birthday party for Curtis Tigard. His 100th. The party is Saturday, April 25 from 1 to 4 at the Tigard Library Community Room.

Meanwhile, here at the Sherwood Heritage Center in Sherwood Oregon USA, a lot of desks and furniture was moved around on Wednesday. We didn't get as far as setting up the exhibit, but at least the heavy lifting is done at Smock House. I hope. I'm sure Paul and Steven hope so too. Those old metal box springs are heavy. Not to mention the cast iron stoves. We have relocated the school room to the area formerly used for an office in the Morback House and the office is now in a hall area that formerly housed old tools. The tools have been relocated to our tool shed. As you can imagine there was a lot of "we can't move this until we find a home for this and that has to get out of the way first."

Our next meeting is Monday, April 27 at 3:30 p.m. in the Morback House Museum. Everyone is welcome to attend. Our main agenda item will be discussing the 4th graders. They'll be arriving June 1, June 3, June 5, and June 8. Hundreds and Hundreds.

Oh dear! What is there to look for at a cemetery? What time of the day were you planning to go there? How about midnight? Your imagination will give you all kinds of things to see and remember.

I'm sorry. I'm teasing you. The best thing to do would be to read the last act of Thornton Wilder's play, "Our Town." After that, talk to me about all the work I've done to bring these deceased people back to life.

AHEM....Exuse me Mr. Whom-ever-you are! Let us see. Perhaps you children should look to see how many people were in war, for starters. You can find Civil War thru World War II veterens there. That would be something to look for. You could make a list of their names. If you love math, you could record the ages of the people by subtracting the death from the birth. Then you could learn how to find an average age. Those are two projects you could do.
