TEDxMuskegon 2014

TEDxMuskegon 2014
November 6th

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a nonprofit group that focuses on the concept of ideas worth spreading. TEDx is a locally, self-organized event under the TED banner. Instead of paying $6000 to attend a TED conference, you can pay a significantly cheaper price to attend a TEDx event. Speakers are there to present ideas that could possibly challenge the way you think or inspire you to action. Mark your calendars.

Capitol Steam invades the Hackley & Hume Historic Sites and Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party

Come join Brian & Cindy Scull in a guided tour through the beautiful, Victorian Hackley & Hume homes http://www.lakeshoremuseum.org/project/hackley-hume/, the Fire Barn, and Depression Era Scolnik house, in historic downtown Muskegon. Engage in Parasol Dueling, or play croquet and other yard games out on the front lawn. There are other Victorian Era homes and buildings in the immediate area, so be sure to bring your cameras!
Steampunk or old timey attire is preferred but not mandatory.

After our tour we will have the option of having a group photo taken in front of the Muskegon Union Train Station http://www.detroit1701.org/Muskegon%20Union%20Station.html or proceeding down the block to the Muskegon Woman’s Club for Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party! http://www.muskegonwomansclub.org/historic-building.html Tea and homemade goodies will be provided.

Admission to the Historic Sites is $7 per person, or if we have 20 or more people we will receive the group rate of $5, while children under 12 are free. The Fire Barn, Scolnik House, and the Lakeshore Museum Center are free. Please e-mail Cindy at [email protected] if you will be attending, by September 27, 2015 so that the Historic sites can have sufficient staff on hand to guide us.
Cindy’s Birthday Tea Party is free, but because of the size of the Tea Room in the Woman’s Club will be limited to the first 40 people who RSVP to Cindy at [email protected] before September 27th. The Tea Party will begin at 3PM, and there will be Tea Dueling! So start practicing now.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dBrcwCQkg1Q
