Young Collectors

2021 Program information will be posted in the spring.

Participants ages 13 and up will meet at the event location. Following the program participants will assist with set up for KidsView activities.

About Young Collectors
This program is for collectors between the ages of 13-20 that might be interested in history, art, and collecting. This program expands on the education and activities of Kids View and offers new advanced education and retention opportunities for young RWCS members who have graduated from Kids View.

The Young Collectors Cub was started at the 2011 Convention by Wendy Callicoat, after her 10 years of partnering with Sue Jones Tagliapietra to develop and launch Kids View. This program consists of educational seminars, field trips, networking, and hands-on experiences.

Goodhue County Historical Society serves as the steward for county history by collecting, preserving, and promoting the natural and cultural history of Goodhue County through education and outreach.

Minnesota’s oldest county historical society, the Goodhue County Historical Society was chartered in 1869. After residing for 37 years in the basement of the County Courthouse, the Society moved into the Baptist Old People’s Home building on College Hill in Red Wing in September of 1969. Between 1989 and 1992, the building was remodeled to increase storage and exhibit space.

About Kids View
The Kids View of Red Wing Program began at the Annual Convention in 2000 and became a part of the MidWinter GetTogether in 2007. Kids View is for children ages 3 to 13 years of age. Its goal is to educate and stimulate the youth of the RWCS, as they are the next generation of collectors. Each year the participants are offered a jam-packed schedule of events. Some of the topics in years past have included:
  • Make Your Own Stoneware
  • An auction, both Silent and Bidding interactive with “Red Wing bucks”. All pieces are donated by our generous members!
  • Paint a real Red Wing Plate, just as it was done in the Pottery
  • Starting and display a collection
  • Living history presentations
