Aprons June 03, 2011

June 3, 2011 by Hubbard County Historical Museum Director

Pioneer women always wore aprons.  Nowadays you hardly see anyone wearing an apron.  Perhaps no one has eggs to gather, berries to pick or hot pans to move around on the stove.

There was a tornado that went through town on the evening of Monday May 31, 2011.  There is damage all over town, luckily here at the museum we had no damage.  There were lots of leaves on our steps and a few twigs in the front lawn.  We were very lucky.

School is out for the summer, school children are always welcome here at the museum, however we prefer that they are accompanied by an adult.

Just a reminder that June 11, 2011 is our annual fundraising dinner at the American Legion in Park Rapids. Serving will begin at 4:30 and end at 7:30.  The dinner will include BBQ pulled pork buns, cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans  and ice cream for desert.  We will be having a silent auction and Musicans will be entertaining at 6PM.  I hope you will join us on our quest to keep history alive in Hubbard County.

    The apron was a grand invention. Not too many years ago, our choice of clothing was limited. Cotton, wool, leather, fur, wood, (sandals and shoes), iron. The new house wife usually had one or two dresses. She wore one and scrubbed the other. And just think of those thin diapers. God Bless the synthetics, and electronics. Just back during WWII, home entertainment was a clock that could strike the hour.
    Thanks, Del
