Stella Museum season opening: Kids Day


The Stella Historical Society announces the opening day of its 2017 museum season on Saturday, July 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Opening day will feature a special Kids Day with a variety of pioneer games.

Some of the games will be hop scotch, checkers, button spinners, cat’s cradle, a treasure hunt, bean bag toss and pin the tail on the donkey. And, of course, there is always the old school bell that anyone can ring. Jerry Kelly will have a variety of old axes on display to show what axes were like back in the olden days.

Pennies will be awarded to kids as prizes, and they will be able to use their winnings to purchase penny candy, water, pop and ice cream.

While the Kids Day on July 8 will be the opening of the museum season, the museum will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Sunday, August 27 with experienced docents on hand to share the area’s history.

Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.

The museum is located about 10 miles west of Longview at 8530 Ocean Beach Highway. For more information, call Barbara or Harvey Williamson at 360-423-3860 or Sue Richards at 360-423-8663.
