“Operation Hands On History” Veterans Day Event
November 10, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
HWI is partnering for the 2nd year with the Veterans Day reenactors, Ellis County Museum, Waxahachie Downtown Merchants, and local schools to put on a “history walk” for families during Veterans Day Weekend. Students who participate will receive a voucher at the event that can be returned to school for campus-based incentives. Join us November 10th, from 1-3pm, followed by the WWII Reenactment at 3:30pm. We are so excited to be part of this event that brings in people from all over the country and educates local youth using the history in and about Waxahachie as their canvas. History hunt starts in front of the Ellis County Courthouse.
