From Diane Kemble, Education Director, Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation
Mark your calendars for the first “Family Day” on February 23 at the President Calvin Coolidge Museum and Education Center in Plymouth Notch, VT. Sponsored by the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation in cooperation with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, a variety of activities will be offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Visitors of all ages can explore the museum exhibits: More Than Two Words and Gone Fishin’ with the President. Hands-on activities will be ongoing in the classroom. Visitors can make small diaries, just like the ones Calvin and his sister Abbie used, and read some samples of what they wrote in their diaries. Try out ink pens, handle artifacts from Coolidge’s time, see photographs of President Coolidge’s Inauguration, and have your picture taken with the President and Mrs. Coolidge.
There will be old-time movie shorts shown in the Fireplace Room and at 1:00 Bill Jenney will give us a preview of the upcoming Baseball Exhibit. Explore the wintry village, try to solve the Coolidge Quest, and stop in at the Plymouth Cheese Factory. Suggested donation is $10 per family.
For more information call 802-324-3389 or see www.calvin-coolidge.org. The Museum and Education Center are located at 3780 Route 100 A in Plymouth, VT. The next Family Day will be held on March 23.
