CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Historical met Tuesday and finalized its plans to participate in the Clearfield County Fireman’s Parade on Monday, July 30.
The society’s entry will center upon its Night at the Museum event, which is planned for Thursday, Aug. 16, at 6 p.m., at the Kerr House Museum, at 104 E. Pine St., in Clearfield.
Society directors and friends will take the part of local Clearfield County historical characters, by each giving a first person description of their portrayed characters from the 18th to the 20th century.
The re-enactors will dress in period clothing and take questions from those attending. The format will reflect the plot of the movie: Night at the Museum.
Snacks and refreshments will be available. An outdoor film showing original footage of the 1938 Last Raft will be shown on the museum lawn.
The event is entirely free of charge and is geared to be family friendly for young and old alike.
In other business:
- The board made plans to feature its museum and genealogy center on WTAJ-TV’s Central PA Live program on Monday, Aug. 6 at 4 p.m.
- Expressed its thanks and appreciation to the Clearfield Borough police officers for their routine nighttime checks of both the museum and research center.
