BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Discovery Center will hold a Presidents Day celebration Monday.

The center told 12 News Sunday it is busy preparing.

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The center will spotlight presidential pets.

Assistant Executive Director Cheryl Dutko said many unusual pets once lived in the White House.

“All kids like animals,” Dutko told 12 News. “We’ll have some visiting therapy dogs here and some chickens too.”

Along with animals, there will be crafts, activities and a scavenger hunt.

On March 3, the center will hold a read-a-thon where members of the community will be reading stories.

Anybody can contribute to it and it will be on their Facebook page.
