Lebanon History Day

How does an idea become an event? It starts with a spark. The Lebanon History Museum's spark was a visit to the Fite-Fessenden House for their High Tea.

Fite Fessenden House High Tea

After Alexa Moscardelli and Judy Sullivan asked us to coordinate something with their museum, Mattie Neeley and Kathleen Vail sparked an idea while they were still in the car driving back to work. Our team agreed with the idea and we set to create Lebanon History Day.

We contacted the Director of Lebanon Special School District, Scott Benson to see if this spark could become a flame. He was beyond excited with the idea.

Five Schools, four hundred fifth graders!

Next we contacted the museums and they could not wait to get started!
