OH WOW! Announces Reduced Admission Cost for Labor Day Weekend
First National Bank Support Makes Special Weekend Possible

Youngstown, OH – August 27, 2012 - Families can add one more fun learning activity to their list of Labor Day weekend plans. On Saturday and Sunday, September 1 and 2, all visitors to OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology will pay half-price admission. This is the second consecutive year that First National Bank, a dedicated supporter of OH WOW!, has underwritten the public’s cost of admission for the Labor Day weekend. Last year, hundreds of visitors took advantage of a similar opportunity.

Suzanne Barbati, the Center’s executive director, predicts a rewarding weekend. “Visitors will have opportunity to enjoy the many interactive exhibits at OH WOW! It’s a great way for families to add some fun to their weekend and kick off the school year by promoting learning through the hands-on exploration of our permanent exhibit collection.”

As just one example, visitors to OH WOW! can experience an ATM exhibit donated by First National Bank. The exhibit provides an inside look at the internal workings of an actual ATM machine during a simulated banking transaction. The only difference is that this ATM dispenses special coupons instead of money. The ATM was added in 2011 to a collection of 30 other hands-on, interactive learning opportunities including an experimental airplane and 60 feet of water exhibits that includes a stream table, an erosion table and a laminar shooter.

According to Vincent J. Delie Jr., CEO, First National Bank, the discounted admission 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 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 occupies 16,000 square feet of space in the historic McCrory Building, which is located on Central Square in Youngstown and owned by First National Bank. OH WOW! offers hands-on, interactive exhibits that provide unique, fun and educational opportunities for children of all ages.

The discounted admission will be available during the regularly scheduled hours of 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Saturday, September 1, and Noon to 4:00 PM on Sunday, September 2. The Center, which is located at 11 West Federal Street in Youngstown, will be closed on Labor Day.
