Family Grab-and-Go Bags: Help on the Home Front

Saturday, October 3 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm |

Did you know Connecticut companies produced airplane engines during World War II? Discover how people all across America manufactured, farmed, and conserved in support of the war effort by exploring Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy, an exhibit from The National World War II Museum, and Fighting on the Home Front: Propaganda Posters from WWII, an exhibit from the Detroit Historical Society. Then, make your own toy airplane!

These Free First Saturday Grab-and-Go Bags are free and great for children of all ages. For more information, please contact Katerina Mazzacane, Youth and Family Programs Manager, at 860-236-5621 x222, or email
