Boot Hill Museum will be hosting a retirement party for long time employees Brent Harris, Sally Brehm, and Richard and Mildred Jensen. The museum’s success reflects the many years of work from these four dedicated and passionate employees.
Harris has been working at Boot Hill Museum for 18 years and has held numerous positions. He’s been a stagecoach driver, development director, part of the Long Branch Variety Show cast, on the maintenance crew, carpenter and brand ambassador.
Harris has represented Boot Hill and Dodge City across the U.S. at trade shows and performances. He’s been an honorary marshal and many people recognize Harris from Boot Hill Museum and Dodge City CVB billboards across Kansas.
In 2001, Brehm, AKA "Grandma Sally", began working in the museum’s kitchen and has been credited in establishing the nightly country-style dinners during the summer season.
She has hosted hundreds of dinners, parties, and gatherings and has enjoyed visiting with guests and repeat customers that come back each year to see her.
Richard and Mildred Jensen started working for the museum in 2007 to fill several important positions.
Richard has been the museum’s Piano Man, entertaining guests from all over the world with music. Richard can play by ear and could play nearly any song that was requested.
Mildred has been working in the Rath General Store and has helped with school tours each year and loved to lead the classes in choruses of "Home on the Range."
The public is invited to attend this special retirement party on Monday, Dec. 10 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Long Branch Saloon. Refreshments will be served.
