2017 Kansas Event

Kansas Singles in Agriculture spent the weekend of February 11th to 13th, 2017 in Topeka – Lecompton Kansas area.  Nineteen members/guests enjoyed exploring the historic background of this part of the State.  Saturday morning members gathered in the North Topeka Arts District, where there are many antique, art or gift shops.  Bradley’s Corner Café served our noon lunch.  Almost everyone enjoyed a piece of delicious homemade pie!  The Kansas Garden Show at the Expocentre provided the afternoon entertainment.  With close to 100 exhibits, there was plenty of things to purchase, to get ideas from or just browse around.  Most of the group went through the Monroe Elementary School Museum to explore the interactive displays of the civil rights movement and the struggle for equal justice and the role of the 1954 Supreme Court.  This building is a National Historical site of the Brown vs. Board of Education case. 

 

 

After a quick trip by the hotel, members and guests enjoyed the evening at the Blind Tiger Brewery. 

 
 
 

Lecompton’s Aunt Netter’s restaurant served us a delicious lunch, with another selection of tasty fresh pies!  At 2 pm, close by and across the street, we gathered at the Historic Constitution Hall for the reenactment “Lee and Grant at Appomattox”.  It was standing room only and greatly attended by enthusiasts from near and far.  After this reenactment, many SIA members headed home from a very history influenced weekend.  Others stayed over one more night for a guided tour of the Kansas State Capital, which included a trip up 256 steps to the top of the dome for those interested.  This weekend was much enjoyed with a hardy “Thank You” to our planner, Kathleen Craig, and her helper, Jill McCollum.

KANSAS CHAPTER MEETING, PHILLIPSBURG
Kansas Chapter of Singles in Agriculture enjoyed ‘March in Northwest Kansas’. The event took place March 11th – 13th, 2016 in and around Phillipsburg Kansas. Two guests and a total of thirteen members attended parts or all of the weekend. After gathering at Rodeway Inn and Suites Friday afternoon, the group headed to downtown Phillipsburg for the first tour. The staff at The Shepherd’s Mill walked us through the process used from when fleece/hair arrive to when it ends up a beautiful clean soft skein/spool of yarn. They also have a weaving loom, which at the time was halfway threaded with warp for the next project.

Our first tour on Saturday was at Logan Kansas, a few miles south and west of Phillipsburg. The Dane G Hansen Memorial Museum is dedicated to preserving the life of Dane G Hansen, which includes the history of Kansas and Phillips County. Greeted at the door by the ultra-realistic sculpture security guard, we also enjoyed the work of Andrea Rich, an internationally known wildlife print maker, which was on display at the time.

 

Our next stop was at the historic home and former Lutheran church, which is the residence of Carol Bales. She told of how she acquired it, spent time drawing up plans and personally worked on the renovation which took years to accomplish before becoming her home.

Our weekend adventure continued for a lunch stop at the Triple C Café in Glade Kansas before stopping at the Bill Clark Train Museum and Photography Display, which adjoins the Huck Boyd Community Center in Phillipsburg KS. The volunteers put the train display in motion and explained some of the special aspects of their train museum.

The evening and weekend was complete after eating at the Branding Iron Restaurant before watching the live performance of “Said the Spider to the Spy” in the Huck Boyd Community Center. Local talent did a great job of entertaining the group. Goodbyes were said before the evening was over since many were either returning home or leaving early on Sunday morning.

Fellowship was enjoyed while delicious food was served. The hospitality room was a great place to relax and visit.
A vast selection of goodies was another reason to stop by.
Thursday evening sandwiches and a 30th birthday cake were
served to the crowd in the hospitality room to celebrate the 30th
year of SIA.
   
The auction went well and provided some entertainment too.
   
There’s nothing like a matching sweater… … or a successful bid!
   
Friday night the Buck Hollow Band kept the dance floor full. Saturday night the DJ helped
members pick the favorite songs to play.
 
Sunday morning, hugs and goodbyes sent everyone home again.
