Hands On History celebrated its 10-year anniversary Saturday with a record amount of support and attendees.
This is the largest event of the year for the H. Earl Clack museum foundation. Their top three are Hands On History, the Shot in the Dark Golf Tournament and the Christmas celebration. But, Hands On History brings the biggest number of the community members together to create a special event for children and adults alike and give them a chance to learn or create something new.
This year, there were 34 different activities for kids to participate in and 20 of them were free of charge due to sponsorship. Each event that required tickets cost just around $2 to $3.
Allison Keeley is one of the main organizers of the event and the secretary for the museum foundation. She said Saturday that Hands On History was a great time for a small amount of money.
"For $20, kids can come and do anything," Keeley said.
