|"Country Hoedown" is subject of Jo Ho Storyteller program on Oct. 18 at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center|
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-October.
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 one Wednesday each month at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. The cost for each one-hour program is $2 per person, and museum members receive a 20 percent discount but must register by telephone to receive their discount. Registration for these programs does not include admission to the Johnson County Museum or to KidScape.
The next program in the series is called "Country Hoedown" and will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 18. Participants are invited to put on their dancing boots and grab a partner as Granny McDonald invites them to some rootin’ and yahooin’ down on the farm yarns. Whether it’s kissing a cow, givin’ a pig a belly rub, or chasin’ rabbits through the pumpkin patch, it’ll be the fall hootenanny you’re lookin’ for. Yeehaw!
