Between Fences contests underway Can you identify this weekâ�?�?s Mystery Fence? Somewhere in this issue of the Plain Talk is a Mystery Fence photo. Look for it; and if you are the first one to call or e-mail the W.H. Over Museum to correctly identify the pictured fence each week, you will receive a prize. Last weekâ�?�?s Mystery Fence photo showed a fence located at the corner of Dakota and Clark beside a parking lot reserved this summer for those constructing the new medical school building. This is the first of six mystery photos; look for the rest each week throughout October. Winners in all contests will be invited to accept their prizes at the closing program, â�?�?Breaking Down Fences,â�? on Sunday, Nov. 2. Have you picked up a picket at the Over yet? A number of folks have and are bringing their painted entries back to the museum to be added to the community fence. Come and check out what your neighbors have been doing and vote for your favorites. The initial entries for the Open Photography Contest are also now on display. Come visit the W.H. Over Museum to see the visiting Smithsonian exhibit as well as the local entries to the various contests now underway. Children who visit are enjoying doing scavenger hunts and decorating cardboard pickets to add to the Childrenâ�?�?s Fence. Due to popular demand, the School Art & Photo Contest deadline has been extended from Friday, Sept. 18, to Saturday, Oct. 4. By then the Between Fences exhibit will be in full swing and the W.H. Over Museum will be open until 5 p.m. every day. School contest entries will be hung for display as they are received. Remember the other Between Fences contests: an Open Photography Contest, an Essay and Poetry Contest and the Paint a Picket Contest, as well as the Mystery Fence Contest. These have been announced in earlier issues of the Plain Talk. More information is available at the Web site www.between fencesvermillion.org.

Over Museum at 7 p.m. The audience appreciated hearing from this new member of the USD History faculty. The Between Fences exhibit will run through Nov. 2. The W.H. Over Museum will have special hours for this exhibit and will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call W.H.
