In celebration of Texas Archeology Awareness Month, the Comanche County Historical Museum will be unveiling its newly acquired Lewis Shanks’ arrowhead collection on Sunday afternoon, October 20, at 1:30 p.m. and everyone is invited to attend the celebration, which will also double as a fund raiser* for the museum.
Although there is no charge to view the massive collection, a donation will be required at the door. Guests need to come hungry since once inside they will be treated to an array of pies (made by Gustine’s Henry Adcock) along with other sweets to choose from as well as the other finger foods the museum is quite well-known for serving.
For a donation of $75.00 and above, anyone may preorder a pie (by October 17) that can be picked up on the 20th at the museum. Orders may be placed by calling 325-356-2991 or 325-280-9083. Choices are chocolate, coconut, caramel, pecan, lemon, or a dozen apricot fried pies, made as only Henry can make them!
An added attraction for the day will be provided by Chris McNutt who will be set up in the yard of the museum and who through living history will give guests more insight into the lives and skills of the native Americans who once ranged right through our area. His program will be fun for adults and children alike.
Be sure to watch Texansunited.com, KCOM, and the Comanche Chief for more on what is shaping up to be a really great day in Comanche, Texas.
*Museum volunteers have worked hard this year to make what they believe are some very positive changes in the overall look of the museum and hope that everyone will plan to spend time wandering through all 14 rooms. Of course, none of this is possible without operating funds, and the museum is in great need of funds at the moment. Remember, your contribution is tax deductible, and giving to the museum keeps those dollars working right here at home!
And, of course, the museum is always looking for interested volunteers. Let someone know if you would like to help.
