COSHOCTON — The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will host an "underwater" tour of the coast of Cozumel, Mexico, with scuba diver Maxx McKenna, who will present a Cozumel Underwater Film Night at 7 p.m. March 15.
Located off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in the Caribbean Sea, Cozumel is a lush tropical island rich in flora and fauna. Known by tourists for its bustling balnearios and seaside resort towns, Cozumel provides ample opportunity for scuba diving and snorkeling.
For several years, Maxx has been exploring and videotaping amazing and spectacular subaquatic landscapes and animals not only in Ohio, but in Asia and Mexico. We are pleased that he is sharing his adventures with the public.
The admission is free, thanks to a donation towards adult programs. Those attending are invited to bring their own refreshments.
"Getting into Mischief," the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place March 8 at the museum in Coshocton.
Did you ever get a little wild and crazy in your younger days? Perhaps you remember drag racing, stealing eggs from a neighbor or sneaking into the movies with your friends.
We want to hear all the sordid details of your mischievous days growing up in Coshocton and invite you to share your memories during this hour-long discussion from 12 to 1 p.m.
JHM’s "Our Town Stories" gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 12 p.m.
The conversation animates "the old days" as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not.
The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising.
Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.
April’s topic is "Winter Storms."
March is preschool month at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum in Coshocton.
Children age 2 to 5 and their guardians are invited Thursday mornings beginning March 8, from 10 to 10:40 a.m. for "Clay, Wood, Metal, Glass."
Each week children will learn about a material (medium) that is used to make things, functional and artistic. Some of the activities include making music with blacksmith tools and taking part in a tea party.
A clay project will be worked on each week. Games, music and books will also be part of the fun.
"Clay, Wood, Metal, Glass" is free, thanks to the support of the Coshocton Kiwanis Foundation.
