It has been an exciting week at the Mead Cultural Education Center (MCEC) as we added new elements to our Journeying Forward exhibit thanks to a Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation grant. We are adding interactive, hands-on elements for the young and old to enjoy – including new donations from the Larry Ness American Indian Collection are also being installed. Adding these new elements and historic objects only add to the wonderful exhibit that opened in December 2018. We invite everyone to the MCEC on Sunday, April 28 for dedication ceremony of the Journeying Forward exhibit and these new features. We will have a nationally-recognized expert on Thomas Jefferson – Clay Jenkinson from North Dakota. We will also have fun activities to due and re-enactors to converse with. Visit our website for more information on the event. Before then, be sure to visit at Noon Friday, April 5 for our monthly Feed Your Mind Program. Former administrator Steve Lindquist will be here to talk about the history of the state hospital, which celebrates a 140th anniversary this year.
