The East Texas Oil Museum at Kilgore College will host “Thankful Tuesday” on Oct. 29, offering half-price admission with a donation to the KC Student Food Pantry.

“We’re not usually open on Tuesdays, but we thought this would be a great opportunity for visitors to view the museum at a reduced cost, while helping supply our college’s food pantry,” said Olivia Moore, ETOM Director.

The ETOM is located at 1301 S. Henderson Blvd. (corner of Hwy. 259 and Ross Ave.) in Kilgore.

The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, and is closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
