Georgia Children's Museum Launches Summer Program

Announces Grant from Peyton Anderson Foundation

(Macon) Marty Koplin, President of the Board of the Georgia Children's Museum, announced today that through the generous support of The Peyton Anderson Foundation, children from all across Georgia will have the opportunity to benefit from the Museums summer programs. Registration for summer camp is now open, and slots are filling rapidly.

“We are grateful to the Peyton Anderson Foundation for their continuing support of the Georgia Children's Museum,” said Koplin. “This is not only an investment in the Museum, it is an investment in families, education and the vitality of downtown Macon. We are confident that others will follow the lead of Peyton Anderson and partner with the Museum as we make the world of theatre, dance, music, and video production come alive for our children.”

From June 4th-August 3rd, the Museum will offer summer camp programs for children ages 6-12 (must have completed Kindergarten). Camp is from 9:00-4:00, Monday-Friday. The cost is a one-time-only registration fee of $25.00 and $80.00 per week for the first child and $60.00 for each additional child. For more information or to register, please call (478) 755-9539 .

That's good. Now here are some other things I would like to see in Macon: a botanical garden + zoo; more protection/promotion for the Indian Mounds; horse-racing with parimutuel betting (needs s push to be legalized in GA); maybe an automobile race track. And what about a resort like Callaway Gardens or Barnsley Gardens. Macon didn't even get a venue during the Olympics and was unable to hang on to its baseball team.
I love Macon. In fact, I went to college there and even wrote a history of Macon in 1989
for Windsor Press....but new directions and imaginative development are so much needed !!
