ALBERTA ANDERS: The seasons of life

ALBERTA ANDERS: Jesse James Days coming soon

McDonald County, without a doubt, is a unique place to live, to be from and to return to. My loving parents transported me out of McDonald County when I was in the third grade off to that wild and wonderful Pacific Coast, at which time I immediately declared my intention to return to McDonald County...

ALBERTA ANDERS: Despite many obstacles, mother’s faith never waivered

Making a living in McDonald County in 1933 was not easy. There were, of course, the strawberry fields, harvesting crops in the fall, but most depended on sharecrop farming and raising a garden, putting up produce for the winter. Some worked for Pet Milk, some sold them milk.Mother married Daddy in…

A fine novel capturing vivid history in the 1800s on the American frontier, it is powerful in setting, characterization, and its explanation of the course of history and individual choice.

Belsnickles Linda Lindquist Baldwin's Own Site..."Seasons of Snickles" Motivational Speaker

by Alberta Anders

Please mark your calendars for our semi-monthly meeting of McDonald County Historical Society to be, as always, on the 3rd Sunday, November 21, at 2:00 p.m. at the McDonald County Court House on "W" Hwy (Main Street) in Pineville. All our speakers have proven to be interesting, informative, entertaining and this month is no exception. We are looking forward to a presentation by Linda Lindquist Baldwin (originally from McDonald County) the creator of the paper mache Santas called Belsnickles. Just go to www.lindalindquistbaldwin.com or www.ruralmissouri.org and see why Lynda Hardman described these unique works of art as a "reminder of a gentler time." If you are a collector of Linda's works of art that are known world wide, you will understand our excitement in having Linda, the creator of Snowsnickles, Broomsnickles, Samsnickles, Haresnickles, Littlesnickles and her one of a kind, exclusive editions, at our meeting. Beginning in 1986, Linda's reputation is well known, the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award from the Crowder College Foundation in recognition of her exceptional and dedicated service to Crowder College and Pursuant of Educational Excellence in Southwest Missouri, and many other distinguished awards. The Historical Society looks forward, with eager anticipation, to an exceptional program. If you fail to attend this exciting program you will miss out on an opportunity at door prizes, by Linda, as well as a real opportunity to share memories with other Society members. There is no charge and all are invited to join us for an intriguing and exciting afternoon.

We are planning our Christmas program (in December) at the museum at 302 Harmon Street, just south of the U.S. Post Office in Pineville. Also available at the museum at this time are our very popular 2011 Calendars, available for an $8 donation or $13 if we mail them. See Dorothy, Roger or David at the Museum, to be open this Friday and Saturday at 9:00 a.m. www.mcdonaldcohistory.org.

Little did Linda Lindquist Baldwin know that when, on a whim, she bought a book for a nickel at a garage sale, her life would be forever altered.
