Greetings to members of the SFTARC,

Summer activities are upon us! The heat and humidity arrived too quickly for my liking, and I found myself asking nobody in particular “Where did Spring go?” Oh well, I guess we put our best foot forward no matter what Nature happens to give us.

Activities at the Ensor Park and Museum south of Olathe proceeded smoothly all during the month of May. The JCRAC supplied the volunteers to assist Larry Woodworth during that time. The house and peg barn are full of interesting items that bear witness to the creativity, craftsmanship, and ingenuity of the Ensors.

With the calendar turning to June, it is now our turn to help out with two volunteers to assist Larry each Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 1-5 PM. SFTARC members have stepped up and almost filled up the volunteer slots for this month. Only one spot on Saturday, June 16, and one spot on Saturday, June 30, remain unfilled. If any of you would like to jump in and take one of these, please let me know.

I have attached a PDF file that shows the dates for which volunteers are still needed for both June and September. Even if you don’t wish to be a volunteer, please bring your family and friends out to visit the museum and marvel at what electronic equipment was like in those early days of radio. If its hot outside, ask Larry to show you the “cool-down” room in the basement, where you can sit down on a concrete slab at 58º! 

I look forward to hearing from any of you who would like to volunteer or who have questions about the Ensor Park and Museum.
