Oh Wow! Children’s Center Adds New Exhibit
Free Admission During Labor Day Weekend

Youngstown, OH – August 31, 2011 - Families can add one more fun learning activity to their list of Labor Day weekend plans. On September 3 and 4, all visitors to OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology will be admitted at no cost. The cost of admission is being underwritten by First National Bank in conjunction with the addition of a new interactive ATM exhibit. Suzanne Barbati, the Center’s executive director predicts a rewarding weekend. “Not only will visitors have the opportunity to see a new exhibit at OH WOW!, but families can add some fun to their weekend while promoting learning through the hands-on exploration of our permanent exhibit collection - all at a tremendous value.”

The exhibit, donated by First National Bank, is expected to be available for Labor Day weekend. Visitors will be able to watch what happens inside an actual ATM machine as they conduct simulated banking transactions. The only difference is that this ATM dispenses special coupons instead of money.

At designated times throughout the weekend, First National Bank employees will be on hand to help children understand the value of saving money. While supplies last, children attending these instructional sessions can take home a piggy bank to help them begin their own savings habit. According to Pete Asimakopoulos, Executive Vice President and Youngstown Market President, the effort is part of First National Bank’s ongoing commitment to invest in the future of the community. “First National Bank is very dedicated to Youngstown and the surrounding areas. Providing educational opportunities that benefit the children of this region is just one way we choose to express this commitment.”

OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology was named in honor of Roger and Gloria Jones of Youngstown, long-time supporters and major investors who helped the vision of the Center become a reality. The Center is housed in the historic McCrory Building on Central Square in a 16,000 square foot space donated by First National Bank. It offers hands-on, interactive exhibits that are unique, fun and educational. While the exhibits are designed to stimulate learning among children ages 5 through 12, visitors of all ages are certain to enjoy the interactive learning process.

Free admission will be available during the regularly scheduled weekend hours of 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Saturday, September 3, and 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM on Sunday, September 4. The Center is located at 11 West Federal Street in Youngstown.
