Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano hosts seniors event Oct. 9

Plano’s Heritage Farmstead Museum often is filled with small children on school field trips or hosts young families enjoying the 4-acre historic site, which is nestled in the center of the city. But folks at the museum are targeting a slightly different demographic with the organization’s senior-focused program Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit.

The program is for seniors. The next event is 10 a.m. to noon Monday, Oct. 9, where Don Gates will give a demonstration of a traditional chuck wagon lunch; samples of the fare will be provided, and Gates will provide a history of the chuck wagon and the cattle drives in Texas.

Preregistration for each class is $6 for nonmembers and $5 for the museum’s members. The program is limited to 50 registrants; online registration is available at Preregistration deadline is midnight Oct. 5, but walk-up registration also is permitted if space is available.
The museum is at 1900 W. 15th St.
