April 03, 2008
In April we celebrate both National Library Week and National Volunteer Week. We invite you, the public, to come and visit at the Bassett Historical Center, see what we have in the way of displays, see what we have on local history and on family history and possibly you will want to begin the search for your ancestors. Books, manuscripts, files, plus heraldry crests, Civil War displays, photographs to be identified, quilts on display, a family history through family memorabilia, World War I and World War II displays, a replica of the Jack’s Creek Bridge in Patrick County that is our newest display, and a display of gourds that have painted scenes including ones of Jack’s Creek and Bob White covered bridges. We have Native American displays, artifacts that were taken from local archaeological digs in the mid 1970s, a display of musical instruments, paintings and sketches of the local area, an antique tool display and much, much more. So, why don’t you celebrate National Library Week any day this month by coming to visit us at the Historical Center as we celebrate for the entire month!

National Volunteer Week is April 27th through May 3rd and I want to thank each of our volunteers for spending time with us, helping on our different projects, and, in doing so, helping us to preserve history. Some of our volunteers have been with us for quite a while, and others have been volunteering here for several months. We thank you and appreciate you … Janet Fentress, Bessie Lyle, Paige Nolen, Marie Stone, Teddy Compton, Pete Craig, Bradley Harris and Roy Stone.
