This is the last week of school for many students in the Central New York area.  Now what are you going to do with your kids this summer?  How about exploring the museums and historical sites of Madison County?   Doing so will keep the kids busy, but it may also win you a brand new I-Pad!
Twelve cultural and historic sites across Madison County have banded together to create the Cultural and Historic Attraction Passport Program.  The goal is to encourage visitation during the summer and fall of 2012.  Each time a visitor stops at one of the locations they will receive a stamp in the passport.  When they are finished, they will turn in their entry forms.  In December all of the entries will be combined and a winner of the I-Pad will be chosen. 
The participating sites include:
The Oneida Community Mansion House                   
Canastota Canaltown Museum
Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum                
Lorenzo State Historic Site
National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum          
Catherine Cummings Theatre
Cazenovia College Art Gallery in Reisman Hall       
Earlville Opera House
Madison County Historical Society                            
Stone Quarry Hill Art Park
Gerrit Smith National Historic Landmark                  
Cazenovia Public Library
You can pick up the passports at any of the participating museums, tourism information kiosks inside the Colgate Bookstore in Hamilton, the Madison County Visitor Center on Route 20 in Bouckville, Oneida Commons in Oneida, the county office building in Wampsville, outside of Cazenovia Artisans in Cazenovia and at local chamber of commerce offices in Oneida and Cazenovia. 
The passport is also available online here for you to download.

I think it is a wonderful decision by Madison County to create Cultural and Historic Attraction Passport Program. I think this will keep the children busy in the summer and it is wonderful that we got a chance to win a brand new I-pad.
