Hello Falter Fans!
August is National Picnic Month, so we thought it appropriate to share one of John's featured covers for the month of August. You can find these covers on our Facebook page; we publish them every Wednesday. They are also featured weekly in the Falls City Journal.

The Falter Museum hosted a Bridge Social on July 22nd. The event brought many visitors from all over the Midwest to the museum!
Our book, "America Through the Brush of John Falter," is selling very well with nearly half of the 250 limited edition copies sold, so please contact me if you want to place an order.
And we now also have framed the beautiful print "Confrontation". When John sold the painting to the Richardson County Bank in 1980, it was displayed on the office wall of bank president John Morehead until he donated it to the library a few years ago. The letter that John wrote to the bank when it was sold is included with each print.
Here are some additional items that will be available as gifts as the holidays near. We will provide additional information when the products arrive!

On August 21st, Falls City will be in the line of the total solar eclipse.
Here are some facts about the upcoming eclipse:
Partial phase start: 11:39 AM
Start of Totality: 1:04 PM
Duration of Totality: 2 minutes 37 seconds
The last time a total solar eclipse spanned the contiguous United States was June 8, 1918.
This total solar eclipse is the first since 1991.
Scientist Bill Nye will be in Beatrice, NE, joining the Homestead National Monument Rangers, to view the eclipse.
The Falls City Chamber Main Street will be hosting "DINE IN THE DARK."
