Town Creek Indian Mound is preparing for this weekend’s kick off for its three-part summer program called “2nd Saturdays”.
The theme for June 8 is “Fiber, the Tie that Binds”. A spokesperson for Town Creek said the event will offer demonstrations of “primitive and contemporary methods of fiber manipulation” and opportunities to “learn how the Pee Dee Culture used fiber to hold their world together.”
The “2nd Saturdays” series is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources and takes place at 37 State Historic Sites and museums on the second Saturdays of June, July and August. Department staff say, “As many as 45 percent of travelers in the state include culture and heritage when they travel.” [and that] “Visitors seeking the rural, historic or cultural experience will find it at ‘2nd Saturdays’.”
Town Creek Site Manager Rich Thompson says the summer events “help folks make a little family history of their own as they travel, whether it is for ‘staycations’, quick trips or a longer vacation.” [Thompson said] “[Town Creek is] (We are) proud to share genuine North Carolina experiences” through the summer programs.
