Wel­come to sum­mer. Big Val­ley’s tourist sea­son is well un­der­way. It is amaz­ing how quickly we all get into the swing of things once the train starts ar­riv­ing reg­u­larly. Be­tween our reg­u­lar work sched­ules, the lawns, the gar­dens and all our home im­prove­ment projects, it seems we spend our time pre­par­ing to en­joy our all too short sum­mer sea­son and wait­ing to hear that train whis­tle.

Sum­mer ac­tion has be­gun at the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. There have been many vis­i­tors to the new Tool Mu­seum as well as to McAlis­ter Mo­tors. They had another stu­dent worker start this past week and the third worker will be start­ing on Satur­day. They should now be able to have both mu­se­ums open more reg­u­larly. By the way, the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety has done a rough count and con­cluded that there are around 11,000 an­tique tools on dis­play in the new mu­seum. It is fairly full and Rod Miller still has a few hun­dred more tools left at his work­shop. I guess the build­ing wasn’t quite big enough for his whole col­lec­tion. Who’d have thought!

With the be­gin­ning of sum­mer “hol­i­days” ev­ery­one be­gins gear­ing up to de­liver kids’ sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Big Val­ley Li­brary has just hired its sum­mer stu­dent work­ers and is busy pre­par­ing for their Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gram.
