By BECKY BARCLAY bbarclay@newsargus.com There is a lot to do at the Wayne County Museum this summer, for both children and adults. Here's what's on the schedule: • Adventure Through History June 10 from 1 to 2 p.m. for chil- dren. It gives children the chance to learn about their community and their local history in a fun and interactive way. Each child partic- ipating will create his or her own Flat Stanley or Flat Sally doll, which will accompany them throughout their historic adven- ture. They will then be given one loca- tion on Center Street to learn an interesting fact about, where their parents can take a picture of them there with their Flat Stanley or Flat Sally doll. The children will return to the museum and explore the space while learning about the building and the interesting objects that are on display at the museum. They will also get a picture with one object in the museum with their doll and write a short letter to be attached to the dolls docu- menting their adventure. Concluding the adventure will be time for the children to create a chalk masterpiece that will go down in history to be displayed with the dolls. The event is free. • High tea will be held June 24 from 2 to 3 p.m. Tea is served in the traditional English setting of afternoon tea that Americans refer to as high tea. Black tea is most commonly served with a tiered tray of light sandwiches, scones/biscuits and small sweet treats such as petits fours. Tickets are $15 until June 3, then $20 at the event, available at the muse- um or online at waynemuseum.org. • Movie on the Lawn event will be held June 24 at 7 p.m. It will be a picnic-style, drive-in movie event.
