An exhibit of sports and school memorabilia is being featured in the Madolyn Frasier Room of the Falls on the Colorado Museum to coincide with the Marble Falls Homecoming and Ex-Students Association Reunion next week.

 

 

 

This week is Marble Falls High School Homecoming week and the Marble Falls Ex-Students Association All School Reunion is set for Saturday, Sept. 30.

The Falls on the Colorado Museum (FOCM), located in the Old Granite School in Marble Falls, has special exhibits in place in the Madolyn Frasier Room to remind former students of their days at Marble Falls High School.

“Museum volunteers have scoured museum archives for old pictures to display,” said museum board chair Darlene Oostermeyer. “In addition, former athletes and coaches have responded to our requests to display their personal sports memorabilia.”

Oostermeyer said that additional items for the Marble Falls Sports Exhibit arrive every week at the museum. The Sports Exhibit will be on display until the end of October.

Along with that display, the Highland Lakes Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT) will have their annual meeting at FOCM from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7, with a plant sale open to the public.

On Oct. 14, Fossil Identification Day will be held at FOCM. In addition to helping people identify the fossils in their collections, a geologist will make a presentation.

Work continues at the museum with restoration of Rockie, the fossilized bison whose remains were found in Rocky Creek in Burnet County.

At the end of October, the museum will transition to its Veterans' Day (Nov. 11) display, which will remain in place the entire month of November to honor all area veterans.

Admission to the museum is always free Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It is located at 2001 Broadway Street in Marble Falls. To learn more, visit the museum website, www.fallsmuseum.org or contact the volunteer staff at focmuseumchair@gmail.com or 830-798-2157.
