Danny Marlin is certainly one of the artisans that Revitalize Comanche, Inc. is visiting with about playing a very large role in the 1887 mercantile that will be a part of Phase 1 of the new heritage center. This week, Marlin certainly proved once again just why his expertise is sought after by the group after donating a “knife” that once served as both knife and fork.
“After the Civil War, there were so many amputees that someone designed an eating utensil that could be used by anyone with only one arm. This would be period correct for the mercantile since the original company made them till after WW II,” Marlin explained.
Proceeds from the sale of this knife and all auction items will go toward the building of the heritage park, where Revitalize Comanche, Inc. plans to display log cabins, a corn crib, an outhouse, and other structures and implements of days gone by in Texas. For more information, contact chairperson Sandy Luker.
The fun begins at 6:00 inside the new heritage center building, with a BBQ meal prepared by Jerry Gore and entertainment by Robbin Westmoreland Guinn and Gustine’s Wade Luker quartet!
The auction will begin at 7:30. Come join in the fun!
