|Next storytelling program at Johnson County Museum is March 16|
The next session of entertaining and educational stories involving nature, history, culture, and art being presented by local Storyteller Jo Ho as part of a storytelling series being offered by the Johnson County Museum is set for mid-March.
Titled simply Jo Ho, Storyteller, this series of stand-alone programs is for ages three to five. These programs take place beginning at 10 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at the Johnson County Museum, located at 6305 Lackman Road, Shawnee. The cost for each one-hour program is $2 per person, including adults, and museum members are free.
The next program in the series is called "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad" and will take place on Wednesday, March 16. All aboard for a great railroad storytelling adventure where little hands will help Mr. Conductor stay on schedule, drill through a tunnel with the steel driving man, John Henry, and cheer on a small but determined little red caboose. It’s a freight load of down-by-the-station jingles and yarns.
Individual walk-in participations are welcome if space is available, but groups of ten or more must preregister. Individuals and groups can preregister by calling (913) 715-2575.
The final entry in this series is "Me and My Anatomy" on April 20.
The Johnson County Museum became a department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District effective Jan. 1.
