Family Day comes to county museum

Tears of Joy Theatre brings its puppetry to Family Day at the Washington County Museum, 120 E. Main St. in Hillsboro, on Saturday, March 9.

The 30-minute show, “Mantis and the Moon,” is a folk tale from Southern Africa that tells how the proud praying mantis tries to trap the moon but learns humility and love through his failure.

The museum’s monthly Family Day is always free. It includes crafts and hands-on activities and runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the puppet show this Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.
