Come celebrate with us

To the Editor,

The Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center, with the support of the Weirton Rotary, is sponsoring the 150th Birthday Celebration of West Virginia’s founding on Thursday, June 20, 2013 from noon until 4 p.m. at the Museum located at 3149 Main Street in downtown Weirton.

The public is invited to attend this first in a series of events focused on children and their families.

Come and enjoy a variety of hands-on activities, historical displays, birthday cake and cookies, fun games, and more surprises! The children will also enjoy the photo booth that will be available from 1 to 3 p.m. for fun pictures. The first 100 children will receive a gift bag for participating in the celebration.

Adults and children attending on June 20 can sign the special 150th West Virginia Birthday Celebration Scroll that will be placed in the time capsule during the “Rediscovery of Hollidays Cove” event scheduled for August 10 at the Weirton Event Center.

Come and be a part of history! Celebrate West Virginia’s 150th Birthday at the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center.
