Museum board to honor Brumleys in parade


September 12, 2017

Members of the H. Earl Clack Memorial Museum Board said at their monthly meeting Monday that they would like to attach a banner to their Festival Days float honoring John and Anna Brumley for their work maintaining the Wahkpa Chu’gn Buffalo Jump.

Board members, along with Elaine Morse, president of the H. Earl and Margaret Turner Clack Museum Foundation were talking about what they want to do for the Brumley’ s before they move to Salt Lake City.

When board member Alison Hecker suggested that a banner attached to the museum float thanking the Brumleys “would be a good farewell gift.”

Morse replied that she thought it was a “wonderful idea.”

No decision was made on what a banner would say.

In other business, board member Anna Patera said this year’s Dinosaur Christmas Party will be scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 9, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Petera said museum Chair Judi Dritshulus, who was not present at the meeting, had talked to retired Havre High School history teacher Jim Magera about giving a presentation Friday at 7 p.m. in the Montana Room of the Havre Inn & Suites. Magera will speak about how local sites in Havre and the Bear Paw Mountains got their names.

The event is the last of the museum’s summer speaker series, set this year to coincide with Havre Festival Days.

Morse said that the foundation will have its annual meeting Sunday, Oct. 15, at the Duck Inn Vineyard Room. The meeting theme will include “Sunday with Shep,” during which oral historian Randy Morger will talk about the legendary sheepdog from Fort Benton.

No time has been set for the meeting yet, Morse said. Tickets are on sale for $50.
