OROVILLE – The Bolt Antique Tool Museum is bringing back its Saturday information program, which will be held on the third Saturday of every month at 10am.
A press release from the city of Oroville said the discussion would range from local enthusiasts to specific informative discussions about the feature. The goal of the program is to bring more people and children from outside Orville to the Museum of Orville.
Bolt’s Antique Tool Museum is located at 1650 Broderick St. in Orville and admission costs ড 3.
The first speaker at the informative event, which begins Saturday, will be Auroville barber and author Steve Christensen, who will discuss his book, Municipal Larseni vs. Steve the Barber.
Christensen came to Orville in 1947 at the age of four when there were no traffic signals and the Orville Dam was not built. One year after high school, Christensen became Orville’s youngest licensed barber, and 60 years later Orville’s oldest barber. At the beginning of the epidemic, Christensen spent eight weeks writing his book and the next six months he spent editing it on June 14, 2021.
In the context of a self-proclaimed history, Christensen has always been against city taxes because of his belief in wasteful spending by local government. She said her book touched her, as well as informative and funny stories she learned to work as a barber in Auroville for 60 years.
Christensen’s book was recently reviewed by the Butt County or Historical Society and accepted into his library. To him, it is crucial to be a part of Oroville history forever. He said it was well thought out around Auroville, which is why he was invited to talk to Bolt and talk about his book.
Christensen said that while working at a barber shop she had the unique opportunity to speak one-on-one with a variety of people in the Oroville area, from prosecuting lawyers to people outside of rehabilitation who have been sued by attorneys. He said he believed his book was a great lesson in human nature.
“When you go to barber school, you have some wise old instructors who tell you, ‘If you want to build a business, you have to listen and agree with your client, whoever is in the chair at that time,'” Christensen said. You get a lot of different opinions and you can understand the middle ground and you can understand both sides of the argument, who are so biased about their political side and they reject what the other side actually thinks. ”
Christensen said after 60 years of customers he has learned that there are two sides and most problems can understand the logic of both sides. He said he asked World War II veterans to tell him stories and experiences they had never shared with their own children.
“A lot of times people are introverted and eventually they open up a little in the chair,” he said. “It’s a kind of very friendly conversation with people from all walks of life. I blended it with City Hall’s war and history.
The Bolt Antiquities Museum, which opened in 2006, has more than 12,000 tools used in the United States and a collection of tools made by the Egyptians and Romans that are thought to date back to 400 BC. Represents the railroad.
