Did you know that Rutherford B. Hayes was the first President to use a telephone while in office, and he conducted the first Easter egg roll on the White House lawn? Kids through age 12 can learn those facts and lots of others about our 19th president at the Second SaturdaysR4Kids program at the Hayes Presidential Library and Museum in Fremont, beginning in June. The theme this year is “The Life and Times of Rutherford B. Hayes,” and each month through December will feature a fun activity. A George Custer living history presenter will visit in July, a Mark Twain living history presenter in September, with scavenger hunts and nature activities throughout the warmer months.
