Compass Inn Museum 'Children's Weekend' features petting zoo

| Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 7:35 p.m.

The Ligonier Valley Historical Society will present a Children's Weekend at Compass Inn Museum 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

A petting zoo will be conducted on the grounds on Saturday with a variety of farm animals from Living Treasures Animal Park in Donegal.

“This the second year for petting zoo. It was a big hit with the children,” said Tina Yandrick executive director of the historical society.

A guided tour of the restored 1799 stagecoach stop will be geared towards the younger visitors. There will be hands-on activities for the children and 18th-century crafters, including a blacksmith and baking demonstrations in the cook house.

Children's Weekend activities will be included with the paid admission to the museum. Admission is $9 for adults, $6 for children; 5 and under are complimentary.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
