We are excited to announce that the History Center is partnering with Herbergers for their Community Days fundraising event. As you may know, Community Days is one of the biggest sale events of the year at Herbergers, taking place Thursday, March 1 through Saturday, March 3. In the spirit of celebrating the communities they do business in, The Bon-Ton Stores has invited us to sell their Community Days coupon booklets for just $5 each.
