Hesed House: We have been partnering with Hesed House in Wharton to provide a monthly “History Talk” the first Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m. Due to the coronavirus, the program is on hold but is expected to return soon.
WCJC Senior Program also has a “History Day.” A history program or story is presented, and then the group completes a puzzle or game. It’s fun for all!
