August 10 2016 the Teen Center took 11 students to visit the Western Mining and Railroad Museum in Helper. The teens learned about the history of mining. How did the miners know that there where gases that where harmful? The miner would take birds in cages and when the birds didn’t chirp anymore the miners knew it was time to get out. At a time it was said that at least 7 languages where spoken in Helper, because of all the immigrants that had been brought to Helper to mine the coal. We got to see a sign of the mine that has several langues.
After we visited the museum it was time to have fun! Little Cesars pizza and the Wave pool, fun in the sun. The teens really enjoyed swimming.
I want to thank all the teens that went with us on all the trips this summer.
