    The Fred Harman Art Museum will celebrate Fred’s 86th birthday on Saturday, May 25.

    All residents of Archuleta County will be admitted free of charge that day and will also receive a gift of four Harman cards with envelopes. Lemonade and cookies will be served.

    The Gomez Store will be open to the public that day, as well. This is a rare treat for all of us and we thank Lily Padilla and Ray for opening the store that day.

    The San Juan Shootists will put on a display of fast draw shooting around noon and Doug Chapin, a Red Ryder impersonator, will also be at the site. So, if any bandits should try to rob the Gomez Store, you can be sure that Red Ryder will stop the robbery and arrest the bad man.

    Please stop by between 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and spend some time visiting and sharing your memories of life in the “good old days,” when things were a bit different around here. Fred may even have a few stories of his own to tell. You think?
