2015-2016 Programs

Sep 29, 2015

We are pleased to launch our 2015-2016 program year, as always an exploration of our rich local and natural history. In October we welcome the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers who have staged performances in almost all fifty states and enthralled both native and non-native audiences with the diverse traditions of America’s indigenous peoples. The highlight of November will be an enlightening introduction, particularly for newcomers, to the history and wonders of the City of Newark, which turns 350 next year. In December our Gingerbread House Contest and Meet Santa day, once again are sure to be hits of the holiday season. Every program and every open house is made more interesting and exciting by the people who work with us in creating and mounting the exhibits (no experience necessary, just a willingness to learn!) as well as those of all ages who come to enjoy them and to learn new, intriguing information about the history of our community. There are often activities for children, and the Country Store offers a growing array of unique gifts and books for everyone. More details about the Fall Open Houses and events are on the Events page.
