Richard Brookins: American St. Nick

December 9, 2017

It was truly an honor to have Richard Brookins and his family at the museum. Though Mr. Brookins didn't arrive by army jeep or wear the vestments of St. Nickolas, his appearance brought a lot of joy to those in attendance (and maybe even a tear or too).

The simple desire to bring joy into the lives of children during a horrific war, became something far more.

A few photos from the afternoon are now online.

Raising Monarchs

The story of Webster extends beyond its businesses, homes and roadways. One of the things that makes Webster the place "where life is worth living" is its nature and the many parks, woods and trails that are open to explore.

With that in mind, here is a small look into the world of another kind of Webster resident, the Monarch butterfly.
