The Silt Historical Park would like to send out a great big thank you to all those who attended and volunteered at the 22nd annual Chautauqua Days last Friday and Saturday, May 11 and 12, in Silt.

We hosted more than 475 visitors during the two-day celebration of area history and heritage, making it one of the most attended – possibly the highest number of visitors – Chautauqua Days ever.

We appreciate very much the photos Kelley Cox was able to run on the front page and the support of The Post Independent.

Our volunteers worked very hard, and we were able to offer several demonstrations of old-time skills and crafts to more than 300 area grade school children on Friday.

Many visitors commented it was their first time at the Silt Historical Park, and we believe it made a lasting impression in the importance of preserving and sharing our area’s past. If you missed Chautauqua we are open regular hours through Oct. 31, Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Entrance is free.

Our next free event is Doc Holliday’s special performance at 7 p.m. June 8. Call us with any questions or to request a special tour at 876-5801.

Thanks again everyone,

Bill Smith, Silt Historical Park director and all our volunteers
