Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate during our three days of Halloween parties. We had such a fun time seeing all the children in their great and unique costumes. We hope everyone has a fun and safe time trick-or-treating!
November is a fun-filled month at the Museum! We will have Story and Craft, Crafternoon, and Homeschool Art classes available. On November 12th, there will be coloring sheets for Veteran’s Day. We will collect these drawings and send them to the VA. They appreciated all the fantastic art we have sent the past years. We will also have special kid’s activities on the 21st for Thanksgiving. We’ll be featuring a new artist in our main gallery this month – Joshua Sweets. For adults, our November craft night is on November 7. We will also be hosting the popular Clothing Swap on November 15th. To learn more about these exciting classes, including dates and registration information, visit our website or Facebook events page.
If you are working to finalize plans for a holiday party for your organization or business, we have some December, January, and February dates available. Visit our website to learn more about events at the Museum.
Following the Thanksgiving holiday and shopping activities comes a special day – Giving Tuesday on November 27th. If you are unfamiliar with Giving Tuesday, it is a global day of giving and the celebration of work done in the nonprofit organization community. This year, South Dakota is getting its first state-wide day of giving, which coincides with Giving Tuesday. More information can be found here. This year, it is the Museum’s goal to raise $600 for a new LEGO table and blocks. Please note you will see an increase in emails near the end of this month to remind you about this giving day and ask you to contribute to help keep our activities engaging for our visitors. We try not to bother your inbox more than once or twice a month, but we’re hoping you’ll participate in helping us reach our goal this year. If you want to participate early, you can visit our website to donate today.
We’re open Monday through Wednesday from 9:00am-4:00pm for our kid’s activities and we’d love to have you join us. We are available on Thursday and Friday by appointment only as we often have private events these dates. Since we’re getting to the time of the year where we may have inclement weather, please watch our Facebook page for any weather-related closures.
Our offices will be closed on the 22nd and 23rd for the Thanksgiving holiday. We wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!
We thank you so very much for your patronage and hope to see you soon.
