Lincoln Penny Story Hour
Do you know the story behind the Lincoln Penny and how it serves as an enduring symbol of freedom and diversity in our country? The proud little penny carries a deep meaning for Americans of all ages!
The Ruthmere Museum is proud to announce a new FREE program series, the Lincoln Penny Story Hour, launching on Lincoln’s birthday, February 12, 2024.
The LPSH is not a fund-raiser, it’s a consciousness-raiser! For each LPSH Ruthmere will invite a member of the community to read an age-appropriate children’s book to 6-8 year olds either from a visiting school or with their families. But this is a story hour with a specific purpose. These stories will be reflections of each reader’s distinct background, and will communicate the values of diversity, unity and liberty.
Besides the story reading, there will be a unique activity at each LPSH, and every child receives a Lincoln Penny souvenir in a keepsake jacket as a reminder of why this experience is important.
