President's Pets who have lived in the white House
Sunday, October 21st at 2-4 pm
Heritage Trail Association board member and Librarian, Susan Feibush will present a Children's program all about our President's Pets who have lived in the white House. Some of the animals are the usual family pets, but some were not. Did John Quincy Adams really have a pet alligator in the White House?
Susan will present slides and stuffed animals with a short background story of the pet and their relationship to the President and family. This non-political and fun look at our Presidents through their pets promises to be entertaining for the whole family.
Each child will receive a coloring page and a treat (non-edible) for their attendance.
There is no age limit-so kids-go ahead and bring your parents and grandparents!
Refreshments will be offered after the presentation.
Susan Feibush is a school librarian in North Plainfield, NJ. She holds an AB in History from Douglass College, and MA in History from West Virginia University and her MLS from Rutgers University. Susan has been on the HTA board since 1994!
