Creative Discovery Museum Offers Special Members-Only Event

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

The Creative Discovery Museum will offer a members-only sneak peek of its “cool” winter exhibit, Winter Wonders on Friday, Nov. 16, from 5:30-8:30.

Members will have a chance to:

  • Walk through a wintry maze
  • Sip on tasty hot chocolate
  • Trace animal tracks in the snow
  • Visit the Holiday Shoppe, a place designed to give children the opportunity to shop for loved ones.

Officials said, "While you are here, explore how to offer your time, talent, and treasure to others in our Helping Hands exhibit, located downstairs. Families can visit the Hands on Helping Tables and participate in the “Helpers in Residence” program by making blankets for Project Linus. The blankets will be donated to local agencies that assist children in crises. Children will also pretend to be a Bell Ringer and learn more about the Salvation Army, make origami mobiles that will go to local schools, and take part in the Kindness Journal Project. This project allows children to describe in words or art how someone has shown them kindness, or how they have shown kindness to others." 

Reservations are requested and can be made online now at www.cdmfun.org/peek or by calling Denise at 423 648-6085.

Membership must be active at time of reservation. Photo ID and membership card should be presented for entrance.

Do Something To Protect Our Children

It is unconscionable in this day and age that these children had to exist in such deplorable conditions and that an innocent baby suffered and died alone in a locked car.  Yes, there is blame and accountability considering this family had child neglect charges filed a few years ago (that were apparently dropped and expunged) and a large part of the responsibility should ...
