When: Sat., Aug. 20, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2011
Benjamin Harrison is turning 178, and it’s a party at The Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site! This must attend event includes free cake and ice cream, provided by Blue Bell Ice Cream, as well as free museum tours of the first floor only, complete with re-enactors. There will also be a wreath-laying at 10:30 a.m. Is your first or last name Harrison? Stop by the party and receive a special gift! As a part of the festivities, we’ll also be hosting a Benjamin Harrison look-a-like contest. All contestants should submit their photo entries by email to Harrison@pbhh.org by August 12, and the winner will be announced at the celebration on August 20. The person judged to have the strongest resemblance to Harrison will receive a family membership to the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, their photo in the next issue of The Statesman newsletter, and other Benjamin Harrison-related goodies!
