November 1, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am CDT

Free; donations appreciated

Adults and their tots will have fun exploring, discovering, and learning on the first Thursday of the month in the Museum’s Discovery Center. Spend quality time with your tot, while each of you makes new friends. A different topic and craft will be featured each month.

On November 1st, Tara Ricker, owner of Within Walking Distance Homestead, and Karen Messer, owner of Messer Farms, a hobby farm in Little America, will present Little Pig, Little Pig, featuring pot bellied pigs and Hampshire/Yorkshire mix feeder piglets. Tots and their caretakers may enjoy learning about what pigs eat, how they live, their quirky characteristics, and how important they are as pets and food for families. Particpants will be able to get an up-close look at the pigs and pet them. Fun crafts to take home!

Registration is not required and admission is free. Participants will enjoy light refreshments. The program begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. with the program portion lasting approximately thirty minutes followed by crafts, snacks, and time to explore the Museum. Older siblings are welcome to participate in the program.

This program series is sponsored by the City of Lewistown, Canton Chamber of Commerce, Havana National Bank, Lewistown VFW Post 5001 Auxiliary, Rusty Melhouse of Edward Jones, and Chris Bennett of Dunfermline.
