The History Center has been busy this spring, hosting tours and sending staff out into the community to present programs to various community groups. In February, the Center hosted a group of Cub Scouts and Lufkin's Dunbar Elementary kindergarteners (photo 1) and staff presented a program at the Spring meeting of the East Texas Historical Association, highlighting the new features of the website. In March, staff hosted tours for a group from the Livingston Montessori School, Florine High School (photo 2), and First Baptist Church Jacksonville, Texas. In April, Timpson High School 9th graders and a group from Chester ISD visited the Center and in May, a group from Diboll's Family Education Center visited (photo 3) while the Director spoke to the Huntington Historical Society and the Lufkin Kiwanis Club.
