Third Saturday 2015 schedule set

The Sheboygan County Historical Museum has announced the 2015 Third Saturday schedule of events.

The year was 2007 when Sheboygan County Historical Society and Museum Executive Director Robert Harker and Sheboygan County Historical Society and Museum Planning Committee Chairman Henry Jung came up with the idea of a Third Saturday program.

The reason behind the proposed 10 monthly series program was to offer museum members and guests program highlighting a variety of different local history topics.

Eighth years later, with 80 programs successfully presented, sponsors have been recruited, a committee put in place and a list of 10 topics selected for the 2015 Third Saturday program schedule.

The Third Saturday program series, which runs from January through October, features various local history experiences with the best possible resources.

Each program will include: hands-on learning opportunities, demonstrations, presentations, displays, research resources, historic films and food.

Event hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m., with admission $6 for adults 18 and over, with reduced prices for children, seniors and active military members.

Museum members and their guests will be admitted free.

The next Third Saturday program event, titled “Towns and Villages of Southern Sheboygan County,” will take place Saturday, Feb. 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Other topics on the 2015 Third Saturday series schedule are:

March 21 – Sheboygan County’s Rock-n-Roll History Revisited

April 18 – Hmong Heritage in Sheboygan County
