Saturday June 4 “Heritage Days at the Museum” – Chillicothe News Constitution-Tribune
Are you ready to have fun and learn about heritage arts? Join local artisans at the Ronald Wilder Traditional Arts Center on Saturday June 4 to see looms, spinning wheels, ink looms, forges and other heritage tools in action? Or maybe you’d like to see what it feels like to launch a shuttle or shoot fiber? The Traditional Arts Center is located in the basement of the Bethel Black History Museum, formerly Bethel AME Church, across from the Grand River Historical Society, with ample street parking. There will be opportunities to learn, create and even buy items from local artisans. Children’s activities will include tie-dyeing, spindling and more! And you won’t have to leave the site to find food thanks to Daniel Savage and the Elks cooking up a storm with hot dogs and burgers and fresh soda to wash it down. Lemonade will also be on sale – all proceeds will go to the Museum to fund future programs. Music and additional exhibits at the Bethel Black History Museum, so bring an instrument and ‘improvise’ with local musicians – the acoustics are amazing! Vintage vehicles will also be on display along with new exhibits in the Museum’s main building, including a Jerry Litton exhibit. So bring the whole family on June 4 and celebrate our heritage at the Museum.
