Calling all Dads/Male caregivers and kids! Join us on Zoom once a month for fun-filled themed activities, parent discussions and social time facilitated by Rural Response for Healthy Children and The Huron County Museum. There will be a virtual tour of the gaol, artifact and exhibit activities, parent/child social time, and games. This is a great virtual event to learn about our region and have fun with your children!


April 27th  (virtual): Can we look to the past for a better future? In honour of Earth Day, look at technologies, objects and methods ancestors used in the past for their daily lives that are still sustainable and environmentally friendly today. We will be joined by a special guest from Meeting Place Organic Farm

May 25th (in-person at Huron Historic Gaol, 181 Victoria St. N, Goderich, ON): An escape the gaol tour! Interactive in-person tour of the Huron Historic Gaol with stories of escapes, attempted escapes, and how staff prevented jailbreaks.  End (weather-permitting) with an escape-the-jail obstacle course in the large courtyard.

June 22nd (virtual): If objects could talk, what story would they tell? Sharing first-generation immigrant artifacts in the Huron County Museum’s collection. What have people brought with them? What can these objects tell us about Huron County families? Can you guess what countries objects come from in our kahoot quiz?
