Hands-on-Heritage! Colonial Living Day

Learn how people lived in colonial times, in Tyler State Park before it was a state park! This is a hands-on experience with activities and demonstrations led by 4H members and 4H leaders.  Fun patch for any youth that completes the passport.  4H members may also complete a project book and requirements to enter as a self-determined project for the grange fair.

Please pre-register by May 8 so we have enough materials for everyone.  Registration at thankfulsagefarmschool.com.  4H members, please contact Mrs Tobin or Ms Gregory for details.

Event is free, but donations will be accepted to offset material costs.

Groups are welcome and must bring enough chaperones for youth attendees. Everyone must pre-register to be guaranteed materials.
