Sunflower Summer Program
Just a heads-up with more details to come in the future but the Kansas State Department of Education again will have a Sunflower Summer program that allows Kansas school kids and their parents to get free admission to various attractions throughout the state from May 28 to August 14. The state has access to funding that it then uses to reimburse the admission at the facilities.
The Pony Express Barn & Museum was a participant last year, but the organizational effort is beginning much earlier this year. So, while schools are still in session, we can try to get the word out that this program exists for Kansas families to have some great experiences for free. And on our end, the more visitors we can draw, the better it is for us as well.
The website has basic information at the moment, but since attractions still are enrolling this week, I suspect more information will be coming a week or two down the road.
