Remembering L.A. McArthur at the Willows Museum

Remembered as “Willows’ Music Man,” the late L.A. McArthur will be honored Saturday, May 7 during the Lamb Derby celebration with a special display and entertainment.
­­­­.
 “Mac” was an instrumental music instructor at Willows schools from 1925 until 1956 and is still dear to the hearts of many of the hundreds who learned from him about music and about life. He was also an accomplished photographer who recorded in pictures much of Willows and Glenn County for nearly 70 years. For decades his marching bands were Lamb Derby favorites. Mac was Grand Marshall of the Willows Lamb Derby in 1978. In the 1960s, he came out of retirement for two years to teach music at Corning High School. He died in 1985 at the age of 96.

Take a nostalgic look at the past. His life and some of his work is featured at the Willows Museum during May. There will be live music Lamb Derby afternoon with a group of current school band members that will do a “Hungry Five” bit at 2 p.m. and a small gang of oldsters playing at 3 p.m. Free admission with cake and punch provided.  It’s a great journey into Willows yesterdays.
