  1. Hello,

    Are you allowing exhibitors to his event?

    I am reaching out from HMEA here in Franklin.


    • Hello Linda, it is not the type of event that would have exhibitors. We’d love for you to come by and visit the museum and share in a piece of birthday cake in honor of Horace Mann though. I would be interested in hearing more about HMEA.
      Thanks for your inquiry,
