Historical society hosting show and tell

Published 1:01 pm Sunday, June 26, 2016

Remember show and tell from grade school?

Wasn’t it fun to share the story of a favorite object with your friends? Guess what? It still is.

At 2 p.m. on Thursday John Haymond, from the Mower County Historical Society, is going to do a history show-and-tell with audience-participation. He is going to bring several historical artifacts and you are going to play “who can guess what this is?”

And yes, there will be prizes for best guesses (meaning, most accurate guesses). To register for this fun class, stop by or call the Mower County Senior Center front desk at 507-433-2370.
