Trail End Museum a gem

Re: 100th anniversary party
Thank you staff and volunteers of the Trail End Museum, for the wonderful anniversary party in celebration of the Kendrick Mansion turning 100 years old.
The Sheridan Press recently (July 27) called the Kendrick Mansion, “A Beacon on the Hill.”
More than 1,200 people proved that statement to be true. A 12-hour garden party including free tours of the mansion was held to celebrate the 100 years the mansion has overlooked the city of Sheridan. There were activities and games for people of all ages to enjoy. There was live music and a delicious anniversary cake.
The only fly in the ointment was that the scheduled antique car rides did not take place. I’m sorry that the members of the car club missed out in sharing their vintage collections with more than a thousand people — maybe next time. All in all the celebration was great fun for everyone.
I’d like to especially thank the staff of Trail End Museum: Cynde Georgen, Sharie Prout, Rod Adams, Irene Hause and Kristin Hoxie. A big thank you goes to David Peterson, trail End Guilds president, also to Margaret Prout for garden help, and to all the guild members. On Saturday, all these people plus 36 other volunteers and 24 musicians all worked together to make the event the great success it was. Thanks also to The Sheridan Press.
Saturday as I was leaving the mansion, my thoughts went to John and Eula Kendrick. The Kendricks loved to entertain and have large parties I’m sure they would be pleased to know that after 100 years people re still enjoying large, even gigantic parties, at the Kendrick Mansion.
