CLAREMORE – Young people will have an opportunity March 15-19 to experience the life of Will Rogers, including his childhood on an Indian Territory ranch to his love of sports, horses, writing, entertaining and aviation.
At the Will Rogers Memorial Museum from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. daily, kids will have the opportunity learn about the life of Rogers while they participate in hands-on 19th-century activities, make paper airplanes, play a modified game of polo and make their own movie posters, among other fun activities.
The week of fun will wrap up on March 19 with an annual talent show. Participants will be divided into two age groups: ages 5–12 and 13–18. Registration is required for the talent show.
