Whats Happening at the Old Mill Lately!

 

“Paint a Rock” free fun activity was canceled!!

Bummed Volunteers turn it into a spontaneous fun day!

 

Volunteers who turned up to help with the paint a rock activity Sunday afternoon were disappointed when they learned only two kids had signed up for the activity. The preparations had already been made, all we needed was kids.  So, us BIG KIDS decided to paint rocks ourselves.  Pretty soon visitors to the museum were asked to join OUR PARTY.  What a bunch of fun this turned out to be.  Everyone had such a good time.  We had a couple and their two children from Ohio join the painting activity.  They really enjoyed the hands on and left with several painted rocks.  Maybe next time we will schedule the activity for the BIG KIDS as we had so much fun eating donuts, talking and painting.

 

Try to join us next time we schedule a rock painting activity.

 We promise you will have fun!!

 

Grace Hudson, one of the big kids.
