Once a month the Mechanicsburg Museum hosts a "Lunch & Learn" on a Wednesday afternoon and a "Sunday at Museum Square" lecture series. They have had some really interesting guest speakers on a variety of subjects. This month (April) their "Sunday" guest speaker will talk about being a teenager in Germany during WWII. I'm looking forward to this event.
