King Manor grant

The Aviation Development Council (ADC) partnered with The Port Authority of NY & NJ to recently present a check to King Manor Museum to sponsor its archeology education program.
The program exposes students in grades four, five and six to history by using archeology and artifacts such as ones that were found on the grounds of King Manor. Participants also visit the manor’s excavation site, talk with archeologists and see actual artifacts that have been found.
“King Manor Museum’s primary mission is history education and this program - the only one of its kind in the city - is designed to introduce children to the notion that history is all around us - even beneath our feet,” said Mary Anne Mrozinski, the executive director of King Manor Museum.
ADC is a not-for-profit organization that is “a bridge organization between the regional aviation industry and the communities it serves.” As part of its activities, it has a community outreach program.
“The King Manor Museum’s on-site school program became a natural choice for our local outreach efforts,” said ADC Director Bill Huisman. “We are pleased to be helping the King Manor Museum with this exciting program which helps to educate young people throughout Queens and our city schools about the importance of our local history and how our community developed over time.”
The King Manor Museum is located at 150-03 Jamaica Avenue in King Park in Jamaica. For more information, visit www.kingmanor.org or call 718-206-0545.
