Julie's Journal 7/26/10

Julie Johnson is the new Director of the Detroit Children's Museum under its new association with the Detroit Science Center. Julie will be blogging her thoughts as she works toward the reopening of this Detroit institution! Here is her eleventh post:

July 24, 2010 was one of our busiest days. We had over 670 visitors explore our museum and join us for our first Family Fun Day sponsored by PNC Foundation Grow Up Great Initiative. Our visitors received free admission, planetarium shows, train rides, art activities and much more. We had some wonderful volunteers from PNC Bank, who graciously helped all our guests make their own world or baseball figure. This day was a non-stop excitement filled day. One of the stations was Baseball speed throwing. This station allowed our guests to throw a baseball and have their speed timed. One of our young visitors through the ball at 66 mph. Well Done! In addition we had several drawings for fun things like Tiger’s baseball tickets, Puppet Art Theater tickets and DCM t-shirts and mug. Congratulations to our winners!!! O. Oluwole, M. Smith, and N. Ferreira. We are looking forward to seeing all of our visitors again soon. Join us next month for the “Dog Days of Summer” Aug. 1-31.
