Senior Trip to Tellus Museum
Thursday, April 13, 2017
The Seniors group of Mableton First Baptist made a day trip to the Tellus Museum in Cartersville. It is an outstanding museum. I liked the fact that there were many groups of school children touring it in groups and being taught about the exhibits.
Most of our group gathered in front of this 160-foot-long apatosaurus skeleton. Starting at left is Barbara Porter and behind her are her neighbors, Joe and Sandra . Then Carol Durand, Betty Davis , Brenda Nave, Joyce McWaters, Corky Brooks, Kathryn Cain, Phyllis McWilliams, Joyce Square, Jim McWilliams, Sara Stipe, Kelley Brandon, Doug Brandon, Bill Stipe. Not shown are Bud Durand who drove the bus for us, Neal and Gayle Hunter, and Jon and Elyse Rowland.
It was great to see all the school groups taking advantage of this excellent museum. We saw a dozen or more school groups trooping around the museum with their teachers, and there were lots of sessions like this one with the dinosaur where museum personnel told the story of the exhibit.
While the dinosaur was the first big attraction when the school kids walked in the door, we saw columns of school children moving through all parts of the large museum.
Kathryn Cain, Sara Stipe and Joyce McWaters enjoy the outstanding exhibit of early automobiles.
Shortly after noon, we left the beautifully landscaped grounds of Tellus Museum and drove down to Doug's Place restaurant in Emerson for lunch.
