A local museum has planned a special weekend to thank patrons. Sheridan Media's Leslie Stratmoen has the report.
Appreciation days and summer hours start this weekend at the Sheridan County Museum in Sheridan. Admission will be free on both Saturday and Sunday, May 31-June 1, and visitors will receive a 10 percent discount on items in the museum’s mercantile. On hand to greet visitors will be the museum's new director, John Woodward, to introduce the new exhibit that features the area’s history of sports.
The appreciation days weekend marks the start of summer hours, which are 10-6 daily until the end of August. The museum is located at 850 Sibley Circle. Woodward was a recent guest on the Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse news talk show. In addition to announcing hours and appreciation days, he also said registration is now open for the summer sessions for students, called Tidbit Tuesdays.
They'll be held June 10 and 24, July 8 and 22, and August 5 and 19, from 10-noon. There’s no charge for the activities, but children must be accompanied by a parent. And though they’re geared toward children from preschool to third grade, older students are welcome, but again, must be accompanied by a parent.
