We’re not sure if President George Washington made any holiday crafts but he did issue the first national Thanksgiving Day Proclamation in the year 1789. What better way to get ready for turkey day than to attend a Tea Party (punch drinks) at Dayton’s only National Park and create a Thanksgiving craft to take home.
Join us Saturday, Nov. 15, beginning at 1 until 3 p.m. at the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center, 16 South Williams Street, Dayton. The program is FREE and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
