History part of summer plans

STERLING – A Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society Junior Historian program for area children will take place in July at First Congregational Church’s education center, 311 Second Ave.

Sessions will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students entering third and fourth grades meet July 7-11, and those entering fifth and sixth grades will meet July 14-18. Sack lunches should be brought to class; beverages will be provided.

Lessons will include local history and daily life in the early 1800s, as well as Abraham Lincoln’s connection to the area.

Students also will take part in 1880s’-related arts and crafts, music, games, and stories. Peg Albert, Judy Warner, and Mary Lynn Tedrick will be the instructors.

The cost is $175 per week or $300 for two siblings. Class sizes are limited to 20. Proceeds will go toward remodeling the Lincoln Learning Center.
