On Sunday, March 9, 2008, from Noon to 5 PM, the Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum in McDade Park, Scranton, will offer an afternoon of family activities, all free of charge. Charter Day marks the anniversary of the document by which King Charles II, in 1681, granted to William Penn the large tract of land known today as the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Residents of all ages are invited to browse the exhibits, participate in children’s heritage activities and enjoy refreshments.

At the same time, in the museum’s auditorium, sessions and displays from local and regional attractions and sites will offer information and materials related to anthracite culture and history. The event is in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Tourism Office of the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
