Saturday Family Series to kick off

THOMASVILLE — The Saturday Family Series will launch March 15 with lessons of the Civil War.

The first program will coincide with the Thomas County Museum of History’s annual March Lecture series, which will commemorate the Civil War sesquicentennial.

Families will have a morning of exploration, creativity and fun at the Thomas County Museum of History. The new monthly family programs are structured to engage creativity and curiosity while exploring the community’s past.

Inspired by the summer camp program, Make History at the Museum activities will be hands-on and history-based.

Some of the family activities include how to crack a secret cipher used by Confederate and Union spies, write messages in invisible ink, pose as a solder in a photo booth, design a battle flag and more. Participants are encouraged to register for the program in advance— but walk-ins are welcome.

Fees include all materials and admittance to the museum in addition to the family event. Adults are $5 and children over age 6 are $3, children under 6 are free.

The program, including exploring the museum, is scheduled to last from 10 a.m. until noon. To RSVP, visit the website at www.thomascountyhistory.org or call (229) 226-7664.
