August 1, 2017 - Lunar Sample 70035,41 (021) (Moon Rock) Exhibit - St. Joseph Museum, 3406 Frederick Avenue
An Apollo 17 lunar sample collected by Astronaut Harrison Schmitt near the landing site in the Taurus-Littrow Valley region of the moon will be on exhibit at the St. Joseph Museum for three months. This lunar sample weights 118.062 grams. It is a fragment of the original rock, which weighed 5,765 grams. The sample is a mare basalt. The rock, like all basalts, is very old, about 3,750,000,000 years, older than 99, 99% of all surface rocks. Scientific research is being conducted on the balance of the sample on exhibit, which is on loan from NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The exhibit is made possible by VekTek LLC, the global leader in precision hydraulic clamping, which is located in St. Joseph. St. Joseph Museum Trustee and VekTek Marketing Director Tanner Mayhew flew to Houston, Texas, to bring the Moon Rock safely to St. Joseph. The United States is the only country to have landed a man on the Moon. The Moon Rock will return to Houston in October.

August 19, 2017 - Historic Missouri Roadsides by Bill Hart – Author Appearance at the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion, 1100 Charles Street, 10 a.m. to noon and again at 2 to 4 p.m.
It’s your opportunity to ask for a bit of travel advice from the author himself as Bill Hart brings Historic Missouri Roadsides to the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion. His book is a richly illustrated travel/history/photography book, consisting of six tours of Missouri on two-lane roads and highways. Varying greatly in length, five of the six tours mark their beginning points near Kansas City and St. Louis, making the tours attractive to Missouri ''staycationers'' who are eager to get out of the city. Places to eat, drink, visit, shop and stay are listed in the book and include only small, Missouri-owned businesses. Don't look for chain establishments here - only places owned by local people and keeping it local. This book features photographs by the author as well as postcards and mementos from his personal collection. Admission is free. The author is donating $5 from each book purchase to the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion.
