Children ages 4 to 6 are welcome at the Mattapoisett Historical Society this summer as we explore life in coastal Massachusetts through the years in a five-part series. Little Explorers will examine a different topic each week such as whales, ships and Native Americans. Each hour-long program will include games and hands-on activities. Registration is encouraged due to limited space. Donations are always welcome. Parents must stay at the museum during the programs. Thursdays, 1:00 to 2:00 pm, July 11, 18, and 25 and August 1 and 8 at the Mattapoisett Historical Society, 5 Church Street. For more information or to register, call 508-758-2844 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
