This Saturday, Sept. 2nd, the Yellow Trail Museum will host the first of a series of 12 free programs for kids from ages 3 through junior high presented by the Bartholomew County Historical Society.

"Chores on the Farm" starts at 10 a.m., at the museum in Hope. This free, one-hour program will include a short history lesson, some hands-on activities, and a snack. Parents are encouraged to stay with children to watch as they have fun and learn some new information. There is no need to register early for this event, just show up at the museum ready to learn by 10 a.m. The program will last about an hour and end around 11 a.m.

Each month, a new program will be presented at the museum on the first Saturday of the month. The museum's board would like to encourage kids to come to each month's program and let the Historical Society know how much kids in Hope appreciate the special programs prepared just for them. A list of future topics will be available on Saturday.

Don't miss the fun. Who knows what you will have a chance to try!
