Blast from the Past

Blast from the Past, MCHS’s award-winning summer history program for students, will start its 14th summer beginning on July 10 and continuing each Thursday through August 1st.

This year’s theme is “Traveling Through Yesteryear.”

Designed for kids ages 8-12, the program provides hands-on learning about Marion’s history while also being a lot of fun. As part of this year’s program, participants will make an album filled with vintage postcards, photographs, letters and other neat items to become part of their personal “Travel” adventure.

The first session, “Traveling Down to the Store,” will look at how the General Store was the center of many communities. Heritage Hall’s Guthery General Store will be the location.

On July 17th, Blast moves to the Union Depot Railroad Station to learn about “Traveling the Rails.”

July 24th will find the program at the Marion City Fire Department to discover more about “Traveling Safely.”

Blast wraps up its programming on July 31st at the Log House at the Marion County Fairgrounds as we “Travel Close to Home” and learn about how backyards have changed over the years.

Blast is SOLD OUT for this year – thanks for attending and now “HAVE A BLAST!”
