RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The 4th graders at St. Margaret’s School are doing a special performance on Saturday, April 17th as part of their history education. They will be dressing up in period costumes of their chosen figure from history and giving speeches they have written to the public.

It will be held at the wax museum at the Wind River Heritage Center in Riverton. The students speeches will be in a tour style, with performances at 10:00, 10:30, and 11 on Saturday morning. A complimentary meal from 11 to 2 will be served and anyone from the public is welcome to attend.

The museum secretary and curator is excited that the students have the opportunity to give their speeches to the public, in addition to their families, in a historic setting.

“It feels wonderful, and I’m hoping it will be a yearly thing. This was built for the children to learn, so anytime we can help the schools, in fact most of the schools around here come for tours, so it’s special. I’m really looking forward to it,” stated Iva Korell, Wind River Heritage Center Secretary.

The whole day’s festivities are free, including regular wax museum tours offered in the afternoon.
