THCM and Wabash Valley Girls Softball League host Daddy Daughter Dance

Daddy Daughter Dance LogoThe bond between a girl and her father is not just special, it is crucial. It is often the first male-female relationship in a girl’s life and can form the foundation for how she approaches her future relationships with men. The Terre Haute Children’s Museum and the Wabash Valley Girls Softball League recognize the importance of this relationship, and they are celebrating it with an evening to remember.

Fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles and father figures are invited to treat their little sweethearts to an evening of dress-up, hors d'oeuvres,dancing, live entertainment and fun when the Terre Haute Children's Museum and the Wabash Valley Girls Softball League host a Daddy Daughter Dance on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Terre Haute Children's Museum.

Advance tickets for the event are $35 for a father/daughter couple and $10 for each additional daughter. Individuals and organizations can also support the event by serving as an Angel Sponsor for those fathers and daughters who need financial assistance to attend the event.

Indiana Wild animals to visit the Museum to teach "Trick or Treat Safety"

10734131 10152834731138000 3446709920437357032 nWhat do rabbits, cockroaches, alligators and bats know about trick or treating? We’re not sure, but on Wednesday, Oct. 22, some of the creatures from Indiana Wild will visit the Terre Haute Children’s Museum to share their "Trick or Treat Safety" tips with guests! The program, which is sponsored by Duke Energy, will take place at 4 p.m., and it is free with Museum admission.

Developed within the Indiana Department of Education standards, Indiana Wild animal outreach programs celebrate human-animal cultural connections through science, music, the arts, religion, agriculture, sports and recreation, and other areas of life. During Indiana Wild's “Trick or Treat Safety” program at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, kids will learn about the traits and characteristics of various animals, and they will learn how they can imitate these animals to stay safe during Halloween festivities.

Indiana Wild provides live animal conservation education and exotic animal rescue while exploring the cultural connections between humans and animals. Indiana Wild believes that forming a positive, tactile, emotional connection with animals in an educational setting will foster a foundation of conservation and a love of wild things.
