Some serious horsing around

April 9, 2012

Easter may be the season of the bunny, but kids at Washington Elementary School were learning about horses last week.
Anne-Marie Lugo — an eighth grader at Forsan Junior High School — and her mother, Cindy, visited with the kindergartners about animal needs.
“The students in Mrs. (Yvonne) Loya's class sent us a very nice letter and asked if we would come and speak to them,” Cindy said.
During the afternoon presentation, Anne-Marie and her mother spoke about the basic needs of a horse, proper etiquette when around a horse and answered any questions the students had.

“Our former museum curator, Beth Williams Purcell, has compiled photographs displaying the history and importance of museums,” said Tammy Schrecengost, museum curator.
The photographic display will open with a meet and greet reception with Purcell, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
