Head Start Outing
A Youngsville Head Start class visited the Youngsville Pharmacy and Mugs on a Friday to see the employees dressed as in Victorian times. To prepare for the visit, the class studied books and paintings showing the way people dressed in that era. The children were amazed at how Mary Sullivan looked like a woman in "The Boating Party" painting by Mary Cassatt.
The employees and children sang "You Are My Sunshine" together before the Head Start class returned to class.
Inspired by a photograph of his great-grand uncle in front of his Victorian-era pharmacy, Ian Ashbaugh has his staff dressing in period clothing every Friday at the Youngsville Pharmacy/Mugs Cafe.
