Sulphur Springs Mom is 30,000th Visitor to Children’s Museum in 2016


There was great excitement at the Children’s
Museum on Wednesday, December 21, as the Gooding family from Sulphur Springs brought the
yearly number of visitors to 30,000. Debbie had attended Brunch with Santa and returned for a
second visit at just the right time. Balloons and a yearly membership were presented to Debbie
as she entered the Children’s Museum. “Are you kidding? This is wonderful! My boys will love
this!” she quickly exclaimed.
“We want to thank all our visitors who have made this year such a success. This is a
tremendous milestone for the Children’s Museum”, said Sharline Freeman, Executive Director.
“Since the population of Commerce is 8,000, this number reflects the support that the Children’s
Museum receives from throughout northeast Texas. ”

programs throughout the year. Coming soon in 2017 will be the Children Health and Safety Fair
on January 14; a book signing by author Kathleen Hooten on January 28; the Daddy Daughter
