Historic Dinner Held Featuring the Community of Webster

Mr. & Mrs. Frederick Seibt, Hosted Dinner  
“All on a Winter’s Night” lived up to its name as a wicked wind, skiffs of snow, along with freezing temperatures greeted dinner guests at the Versailles K. of C. Hall for the annual historic dinner. The hall was transformed into the Frederick Seibt home and Golden Eagle Lodge of Webster.
Tim & Kathleen Nealeigh portrayed the Seibts and John & Karen Burket portrayed the Seibt’s good friends and neighbors John Adam & Martha Klipstine. An early frontier parlor served as the en...trance to the “Golden Eagle” (which was originally above the Seibt home). Appetizers along with a bar in keeping with the traditions of Siebt’s store allowed guests to mingle and enjoy the beautiful museum pieces placed on display, while Ron & Elaine Marshall played music of the period.
A candle light dining room with tables laden with china, crystal, and silver on starched white linen table cloths greeted guests for the five course German/American dinner.

Our thanks to everyone who attended, to Thrivent Financial, our many volunteers, and other generous donors who helped make this event a success!

New Lighted Flagpole Installed at the Museum

Mary Barga, Tim Wagner, Harold Pohl and Roger Henry 
Our volunteers and donors are making good things happen at the Museum! A project to purchase and install a lighted flagpole was spearheaded by Harold Pohl.
The VFW, American Legion and American Legion Aux. joined the effort and a flag is now flying high over the Museum.
Many positive comments have been received on this new addition.
Thank You, Harold Pohl, the VFW, American Legion and American Legion Aux.
