An evening with Teddy Roosevelt. Vice-presidential nominee Teddy Roosevelt visited Victor in September of 1900.  The Rough Rider was run out of town by an angry mob but returned later to accept apologies and to speak at Victor’s Gold Coin Club. That event will be recalled as Roosevelt, portrayed by Don Moon of Colorado Springs, will appear at the Gold Coin Club Saturday, Sept. 6 as a fundraiser for Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The event includes a bully reception, silent Teddy Bear auction and the presentation. Teddy bears were named after Teddy Roosevelt who refused to shoot an old, defenseless bear as part of a hunting trip. The festivities will occur from 5 to 8 pm.
