These kind folks go all out to carry on the old Appalachian traditions of bird watching and bird carving from wood. Keep well, kindKempers! College program The major Folk Festival musicians always perform on Ffi.-Sat. evenings in the audit0- rium of the GSC Fine Arts Building. Now,if you've never heard folk music explained to you, that would be the place to learn it. Also, in the aftemoom there, Fiddle & Banjo Con- tests take place. The contes- tants are very serious and tal- ented musical whizzes. Kudos to the winners! Most of them, then, jam together late at night in and around the Conrad Ho- tel. Well, that's all of the events that you may or may not have been able to see at this past 2015 Folk Festival. Any others that I omi~.ed you readers can brief me on for future comment. Postscript, No. 1 Humanities Council Numerous other histori- cal and cultural events take place in several WV cities, including many engaging ones at the WV Humani- ties Council's Headquar- ters, located at 1310 Kanawha Blvd., East, Charleston. There, some very interesting "living his- tory" programs are regu- larly scheduled for anyone who wants to enjoy and learn from them. For a schedule of upcom- ing events, call 304-346-8500 for details. Most importantly, many of these events are family outing-type programs, of which your kids or grand- kids would find mind-cap- turing, exciting and enjoy- able! Postscript, No. 2 Hey, Green Thumb folks out there! Garden enthusiasts don't miss a golden oppor- tunity to enhance your grow- ing experience this season. You are, consequently, in- vited to stop by the Gihner County Historical Society to look over the impressive Heirloom Seeds' collec- tion, which can be replanted for years to come! It's an environmentally friendly and healthful practice, too. If you don't understand the program, ask Librarian Dot Frey or V-P Karen Peunebaker to explain this organic growing alternative. The Historical Society actively supports the Folk Festival, particularly in keeping Dr. Patrick Gainer's original vision of having crafts demonstra- tions (like blacksmithing), historical presentations, ghost story telling, among other old-time activities). For info, contact Dot at the Society, Thurs.-Sat. af- ternoons, noon through 5 p:m., at 304-462-4295. Attn: Society Meeting Change for July: Our next Historical Society meeting will be at noon on Thurs., July 23 at the Holt House Museum's Annex, with a covered dish inn- cheon at the start. Welcome all Gilmer County family's history in the county! Postscript, No. 3 Thanks, Gary.* My good friend from Georgetown, DE, Gary Rog- ers, caught my miscue relative to retired actor,Hugh O'Brian. In a caption on our local high school students who attended the Hugh O'Brian Summer Leadership Camp, I'd written that he was deceased. Well, Hugh lives! Hurrah! He's 90, and is still listed as doing bit parts in various TV series. As you older readers will recall, he made his fame as Sheriff Wyatt Erp in the old TV series. Gary is a retired teacher, so we edi- tors rely on these learned folks, like him, to keep m honest and 315 W. Main St. - 304.462.5631 truthful. Thanks, again, Gary! Postscript, No. 4 Kudos to the VA's Med Cr., Clarksburg! This past June meant a whole lot to the Louis A.Jolmson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg, for they were celebrating the "Kick-off of the VA's Sum- mer of Service." It's hoped by this con- certed summer effort that the facility's existing partner- ships can be strengthened and the number of individuals and organizations in the com- munity serving our Veterans can be increased. Hey, volunteers, this is a good opportunity for you to do good for others and to feel good for yourself! For detail on this impor- tant initiative, contact Mr. WesleyR.Walls,PubficAf. fairs Officer, at 304-623- 3461, Ext. 3370.
