Plano's Heritage Farmstead Museum is often filled with small children on school field trips or young families enjoying the wonders of the four-acre historic site, which is nestled in the center of the city. But folks at the Farmstead are targeting a slightly different demographic with the organization's senior-focused program "Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit".
“Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit” is a Heritage Farmstead Museum educational program designed specifically for seniors. Program presentations, conducted on targeted days once per each from 10:00 a.m. – noon, will feature a variety of topics from vegetable gardening, music, history and much more.
"This exciting, popular program allows all of us at the Heritage Farmstead Museum to reach out to another sector of our community to provide educational opportunities, fellowship and fun," said Heritage Farmstead Museum Director of Development Kathy Strobel.
Upcoming Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit programs include:
