The second Saturday of December has traditionally been the Children's Program at the Cleveland Hungarian Museum. Over the many years that we have hosted this event, hundreds of Hungarian-American children have had the opportunity to learn about their Hungarian heritage by playing games, listening to stories, working on Hungarian themed crafts, repeating words, and welcoming Mikulás Bácsi (Saint Nicholas) to the Museum. December 9, 2017 was another day for all the children who attended our annual Children's program. The older youngsters participated in a program designed especially for them, while the younger children enjoyed learning through hands-on activities.
It is a sign of a healthy community when various Hungarian- American organizations engage in cooperative projects, recognize each other's accomplishments and support each other's efforts. On April 13th, our Museum hosted a reception for members of the American Hungarian Educators Association (AHEA). We were pleased to welcome over 50 academics and educators who were attending this year's conference held in Cleveland at the Cleveland State University. All the attendees, AHEA members and Museum hosts alike, had an opportunity to meet one another, engage in lively conversation and exchange views on so many topics, all the while enjoying a broad array of hors d'óeuvres, desserts and fine wines. Our guests were able to view our exhibits, visit our library, and get to know more about the Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society, its work and its mission. This was truly a wonderful gathering!Read more...
