Philomath-Siletz student cultural exchange

The Students were accompanied by 2 teachers and 3 parents.

They were joined by 21 TAG students from Philomath who made the trip to Siletz last April.[Photo]The students were treated to a Philomath history presentation by Theresa Rybel, retired Philomath teacher.

The group was divided into 4 groups that were led by Museum docents Marlene McDonald, Judy Juntunen, Kate Mathews and Marcia Cutler. They explored 2 “history trunks”, the “Can You Hear Me? Now?” exhibition and a tour of the backroom artifact storage in the Collections Center.

Following lunch at PYAC the group was thrilled by a presentation by the high school forestry class out in the demonstration forest.

A great day for the kids funded by a grant from the Benton County Foundation.
