Back to School Bash – August 13, 2022

Back to School Bash

Thanks to everyone who attended the Wayne County Museum’s “Back to School Bash” event on Saturday! A special thank you goes out to Crystal Hodges and Mary Susan Heath who created our free Spring/Summer children’s educational event series. This program was the grand finale of these events. From our STEAM-focused Fairytale Festival, May Day Festival, and 4th of July celebration, to our Back to School event, they were all great fun and very popular. We enjoyed getting to meet and interact with all of the young families in the community. We also want to thank the many WCHA board members and volunteers who helped out with event face painting, arts and crafts assistance, providing refreshments, parking, and more. We couldn’t have done it without all of you! Stay tuned to find out what new, upcoming events we have in store for you

Thank You!
