My friends -
Several months ago, I posted the fact that arrangements were underway
for Eugene Verbeet to come to Murray and present his recreation of
the character of Andrew Meloan, a Revolutionary War soldier who
resided, in the last years of his life, on land on which part of
Murray now rests. He owned a good portion of what is now the Murray
City Cemetery, and his is purportedly the first burial there, back in
the 1830's. A new grave marker was erected for him there not long ago.
Gene Verbeet has been presenting this recreation for 17 years. He is
dressed in authentic Revolutionary War garb, and uses historically
accurate facts and props in his presentation. He and I have
collaborated on facts connected with Andrew Meloan in recent years.
Gene will be giving his presentation to the elementary school
children of Murray and Calloway County next week.
He will be giving a public presentation of his fascinating recreation
during the *6:00 -8:00 PM time frame on Thursday, October 4th(next
week)*, at the Calloway County Public Library in Murray. I hope that
as many of you as can attend will be there to witness this fine
presentation. There is no charge. There will also be a
special, private presentation for the descendants of Andrew Meloan,
and I hope that anyone who can be present for that will contact me
off-list for the details on that event and when it will occur.
I believe that this is a very unique event for Calloway County and
the JP region. I had planned on being in Murray most of next week,
but a health matter has arisen which will prevent my being in
attendance, much to my very great regret.
Please "pass the word" to those you know who have an interest in this
type of presentation. Gene has worked many years to perfect it, and
it is well worth seeing.
