Township History Museum invites the public to attend the opening reception
for the newest special exhibit, Do The Dunes: Outdoor Adventures &
Recreation, on Saturday, September 16, from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m., at the Brown
When the Native
Americans and the first European settlers came to the dunes, they did not
use them as an area for leisure and exercise. They used them for
survival--for food, shelter, and transportation as well as business. Since
then, people have been using the dunes for a different reason--fun.
This newest museum
exhibit traces that transition and celebrates today’s access to and activity
in the dunes.
See an old bicycle,
skis, snowshoes, and more while learning how survival techniques of the past
turned into the outdoor fun and games of today.
Enter your name in
a drawing to win a GoPro! Westchester Public Library staff and their
families are not eligible to win. The drawing will take place in November.
The exhibit will be open through January 14, 2018.
