The next Children’s Program at the Community Memorial Museum is on Wednesday, July 15 at 10:00 a.m. Children are invited to learn about the role of metal detecting to locate objects buried underground. Metal detecting often is used to help locate artifacts at archaeological sites which helps us all learn more about our past. A team of experts will share their knowledge and emphasize the respectful guidelines they follow when metal detecting. Children will have the opportunity to try out a metal detector on the museum grounds. There is no charge for the program and it is suitable for elementary school age and older. Have fun learning about an interesting hobby. Refreshments will follow.
