Moment of Nature -- Nov. 2, 2012

Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From the ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse and unique southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of tree life is autumn leaf coloration. While we don't have the same level of dramatic leaf color as in the northeast, there are many trees here who's fashionable pops of color drape our southern landscapes.

Remember the Revolution, then act!

It is said that a memorial, whether monument or statue is a promise from the present to the future -- our posterity -- about the past. The true value of that memorial is determined by how well we keep the promise. What John Hagins recently did here with our hometown Maria Kirby-Smith in honoring Joseph Kershaw and Catawba Chief Hagler is simply outstanding!

Only an archivist/museum person gets excited about brand new acid-free boxes. I felt like it was Christmas when the shipping boxes from Gaylord Bros. Inc. began to arrive! Finally, the work of rehousing the collection in proper containers could begin. So, box by box, each collection was taken out of its old container and placed in new packaging.
