Meet the Quack Pack!

I'm so excited to introduce you to this year's Quack Pack: my new flock of friends who flew in to Shelburne Museum from all over the country to bring kid and family visitors a lot of fun things to do this summer.

Below is each person's likes and interests. If you see of my awesome friends on the grounds this summer, be sure to say hi! And tell them Webby sent you!

Name: Wells G.  
From: Shelburne, VT (Hey! I think I've seen her around before!)
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Phish Food  
Favorite Place on the Grounds: The Carousel, because I love the beautifully crafted horses and the upbeat tunes that remind me of an old-fashioned circus.  
Favorite Mystical Creature: Mermaids

Name: Liza B.  
From: Los Angeles, CA  
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Cake Batter  
Favorite Place on the Grounds: The jail. It reminds me of a jail that would be in a 19th century book or film.  
Favorite Mystical Creature: Phoenix

Name: Emily Q.  
From: Decatur, AL  
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: White Chocolate Macadamia, especially as a slushie!  
Favorite Place on the Grounds: The Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building, because the rooms look like New York City apartments did 100 years ago!  
Favorite Mystical Creature: Elves & Fairies

Name: Jordan L.  
From: Concord, MA  
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Cookies 'n' Cream  
Favorite Place on the Grounds: The Train Station. I feel like I'm traveling back in time as a member of the Webb family waiting at Shelburne Station for a train to New York City.
Favorite Mystical Creature: CHAMP!

Name: Emma H.  
From: Huntington, VT
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Mint Chocolate Chip  
Favorite Place on the Grounds: The Apothecary Shop. It's packed full of history; there are hundreds of little bottles and vials, and each one tells a story about what it was like to live before modern-day medicine.
Favorite Mystical Creature: Dragons
