Join us for Kids Club at the Museum. Kids Club is held last Saturdays of each month April through September, 1:00 to 3:00. It is two hours full of fun activities held in the lower level of the Museum and in the Wagon Shop. April 27 will be the first one for the year and kids will be doing a Wagon Shop project, as well as having the opportunity to explore the Museum. Activities are appropriate for ages 5-10. (Younger kids than 5 should be accompanied by a parent.) Subsequent last Saturday activities are as follows: May 25, trying out weaving and spinning and other yarn art; June 29, patriotic paper crafts plus getting ready for the 4th of July parade; July 27, button and seashell project; August 31, making a book ; September 28, making cider in an old fashioned press and apple crafts and tasting. Come and enjoy a little hands on history!
Do you like ice cream sundaes and root beer floats?
Then come and visit the SHMA Ice Cream Social on July 4th at our Museum on the corner of Rainier and Main Streets. Relax on the patio of the Museum in the shade of a nice tent and let your taste buds enjoy the creamy or fizzy treats.
The Museum will be open and so will the Wagon Shop. The Steilacoom Town parade passes right by the museum corner – so you will be in the midst of Steilacoom’s wonderful 4th of July celebration. The volunteers at the SHMA Ice Cream Social will offer you their delicious refreshments from
12:00 Noon thru 4 pm.
Come and enjoy!
