Bethel School Summer Open Houses will resume on Sunday, June 30 from 1-4 p.m., with a special presentation at 2 p.m. by the Master Penman, Thomas M. Wasylyk.
You may know him as a martial arts instructor, but Wasylyk is a nationally recognized authority on handwriting and the author of numerous books and articles about handwriting. He will demonstrate the art and technique of beautiful penmanship and explain its importance in learning.
Wasylyk has conducted research in the area of handwriting, and has developed many styles of the alphabet in use in the United States today, including the Zaner Bloser system.
Why should handwriting be mastered even in this age of technology?
Find out at the historic one-room Bethel School why learning penmanship, the act of writing, is such an important skill for reasons you probably never thought of.
Bethel School is located near the “Poor Farm” on Bethel School Road off Route 652.
Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served. As always, admission is free.
Bethel School Open Houses are sponsored by the Wayne County Historical Society. For information, call the Wayne County Historical Society or email Dorothy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
