The Fenton History Center’s new summer program is Meet Me at the Museum drop-off program. Meet Me at the Museum began Saturday June 24. The program is designed for children ages 6 years old to 10 years old to be “dropped-off” at the Fenton Mansion building for one and one half hour at a time. They will be creating DIY Do It Yourself historical crafts, playing games, and touring the mansion. Snacks will be served at each session.

The sessions are on Tuesdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. throughout July, August and Saturday, September 9. The Tuesday dates are June 27, July 11, 25 and August 8, 22. The Saturday dates are June 24, July 8, 22 and August 12, 26. The final drop-off day is Saturday, September 9.

The cost is $10 per session per child. Each child must be pre-registered. Registration forms can be found on the Fenton website, fentonhistorycenter.org or by calling the museum at 716-664-6256 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
