Versailles Area Museum to Host Special Programs

We always knew it was spring when the birds started their sweet songs outside our windows just as the sun came up. In school we studied the birds, colored pictures and created Bird Books to keep track of all the birds we would see over our summer recess. Today we are so busy with testing there isn’t time for these activities for our youth, yet many of us still remember our special bird collections.

Sadly many of the beauties we included are not found in eastern Darke County any longer. The bird population has changed as well as their environment.

On Monday May 23 at 1:00 p.m. our “Last Monday” (a week early because of Memorial Day) will feature local bird enthusiast, Bob Luttmer who will help explain why so many of our favorites are gone and what we might do to help bring them back!

Bring your questions and your friends and join us for an afternoon of indoor bird watching and remembering the birds of our youth. As always the museum will be open and lite refreshments are served with conversation to close out our time together.

On May 30th join us as our Military Room will be set for quiet reflection on this day of remembrance. We will be open from noon till 4:00 p.m. and invite you to add a little history to your summer week-end kick off with us.
