It won’t be surprising if many young boys and girls are trying to perfect their best dinosaur roar these days. They’re getting ready for Sue – a T. rex named Sue. The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture is bringing the life-size dinosaur skeleton replica to town for an exhibit that opens April 28.

The museum is planning a special family day to kick off the exhibit that will include a fossil hunt, dinosaur stories and even a chance to make a fossil. The event will be from noon to 3 p.m. on April 28 at the museum at 2316 W. First Ave. Admission is $10 per family (free for MAC members). No advance tickets will be sold, so show up early.

You can read more about the exhibit in Sunday’s Spokesman-Review, or at www.northwestmuseum.org.

Head Start forums

The community is invited to two forums to discuss the service needs for children and how Head Start can work with other community agencies. The forums will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the East Central Community Center, 500 S. Stone St., and from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the West Central Community Center, 1603 N. Belt St.

Peter Rabbit

The famous bunny is expected to hop into Mobius Kids on April 27 to meet his fans. He’ll be there from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. He’s also expected to drop in the Wee Explorers class for children under the age of 3 that begins at 11 a.m. The visit with Peter Rabbit is free with regular admission, which is $5.75 for everyone over 1 year old. Mobius Kids is inside River Park Square at 808 W. Main Ave. Call (509) 624-KIDS for details.
