Calendar of Events

Independence Day Celebration featuring “The Confounding Brothers”

Celebrate the Country’s Birthday at the Printing Museum’s annual Independence Day Celebration event with our Founding Fathers, otherwise known as “The Confounding Brothers!” Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson will give a humorous and thought provoking account of the creation of The Declaration of Independence and how our nation came to be.

The day’s festivities include special working tours of the Printing Museum collections, including the opportunity to print your own Declaration on Franklin’s Colonial press. Take home lots of patriotic souvenirs printed on our authentic tabletop presses.

Your admission includes a lunch of Freedom Dogs, American Apple Pie, and Colonial Punch in Madame Brillon’s French Garden de Liberte, all while being serenaded by our 18th Century musicians The Colonial Roses. Activities for the whole family are throughout the day in the Museum galleries.

In the Museum’s Heritage theater there will be the entertaining show “The Confounding Brothers” written and performed by our own Phil Soinski. Franklin, Jefferson, and Adams lightheartedly examine the events leading up to this Day of Independence. Please note there is limited seating in the theater and reservations are recommended. Event runs from 10am-4pm. Performances at 11am and 1 pm.

Plan to show up at least an hour before showtime and to stay for 2-3 hours watching the show and doing activities. The show is suitable for all ages 10 and up.

WEBINAR: Provide Unique Value to Overcome Price Wars

Today’s world demands that we add unique, creative, and passionate value to all parts of the sales process. It is not optional and is imperative. We must “over-service” our accounts, make their lives simple, give them headache relief, and reduce their stress. We must anticipate their needs before they occur. And, must be seen by our clients as interactive partners (shoulder to shoulder with them) not transactional vendors (price based and across the table from them). Price is Price. Value = Price + Goods/Services + YOU! Learn to sell value, and succeed!
