Kentucky Adventure class visits L&N museum, Ed Diddle Statue

With 2 photos

By Dana Harmon

On Wednesday afternoon, April 2, 2008, the Kentucky Adventure class from 21st CCLC Camp Casey visited the Historic L & N Railpark and Museum in Bowling Green, KY and got to see the Ed Diddle Statue in front of Diddle Arena on the campus of Western Kentucky University.

They had dinner at the Downing University Center on the Campus of WKU.

This class is made up of 3rd grade students who learn about the history and geography of Kentucky then go visit some of the places of interest.

Mrs. Pam Geisselhardt has bravely led this group on a number of trips around the state so far this year.

The purpose of this activity is to not only teach students about our state, but to instill in them a sense of pride in being a Kentuckian.

We think it's working!
