The Newaygo County Museum will continue our speaker series with Ned Hughes, Chair of the Newaygo Conservation District Board. He will be presenting “The Star of Bethlehem”. Did you ever wonder what the Wise Men really saw on that night some 2000 years ago? What did the sky look like, who were these men, why did they come and from where did they come? All of these questions and more will be answered! Please join us at the Museum on Thursday, December 19 at 6:30 pm.
