Emblems of Webb set Saturday at air museum

Emblems of Webb, a patch workshop for children of all ages, will be held from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. Saturday at Hangar 25 Air Museum. The hour-long workshop will focus on teaching children about some of the history of Webb Air Force Base, and will give them an opportunity to create their own special patch, according to Museum Administrator Genevieve Stockburger.“I wanted to do something to reach out to the kids in the community,” Stockburger said. “Getting the community involved is important to us at the Hangar.”The workshop will include a 15-minute segment on what patches were used for and give the youth an opportunity to take a look at the displays at the Hangar. Those in the class will also get to view the new exhibit, “Insignia of the Past.”“What went on at Webb is important to our community as part of its history and teaching it to our young people is important,” Stockburger said. “The workshop is giving them the opportunity to not only learn a little history, but giving them the opportunity to make something that's meaningful to them.”Registration is $4 for child and space is limited to the first 30 to register with payment.
