A true homecoming...

We were very fortunate to have former Village employee Iris Bosley back on site on Saturday for her first stint as a volunteer. You can see her here, posing with the sign that denotes her special, permanent place in Village lore and history.

Iris has truly been the heart and soul of this place, serving the City of Fort Worth/Log Cabin Village in varying capacities for more than 40 years. She spent many years working in the museum store now bearing her name. At almost 90 years old, Iris finally retired last year after an injury slowed her down (but only slightly). Thankfully she is continuing on as a volunteer!

If you were here this past Saturday, you saw Ms. Iris out on the front porch greeting visitors. Her smile and laugh is as infectious as ever (as evidenced by at least one marriage proposal during the event).

Welcome home, Iris!

My wife and I truly enjoyed our weekend visit to the quaint "Log Cabin Village" this weekend. We simply enjoyed all of the character actors that furthered the rustic experience for us. In especially, Ms. Iris Beasley was so charming and enthusiastic, greeting us in her period outfit. She was a vision of beauty and definitely evoked our imaginations for the old Texas era. Thanks to all of the people who made this day possible and let the sarsparilla flow.
