Wayne Whitaker's wife will teach an advanced basket-making class at the General Store Dec. 3. The class is full. She will teach a beginner's class in January. Both Wayne and his wife are accomplished basketmakers.
Our friend, one time Board member, and current Board Member at Large passed away. He will be missed. His smiling face was seen at many reenactments.
He had a fine funeral, with many reenactors from several states attending. In addition to an honor guard by the casket, a salute at the hearse, three infantry volleys, three cannon volleys, Les Williamson read a poem about drinking from the same canteen, and passed a canteen of apple jack.
We dedicated a page to him, which can be seen by clicking on Pictures/People on the menu, then Ron Robinson on the sub menu, or click here for a temporary link.
Our Education Day had a tremendous turnout with students and teachers from seven counties. The Ladie's Tea, reenactment and ball on Saturday were well-attended, and a lot of fun. Sunday's church service was good, and we had a nice battle. Pictures are posted. See Pictures/2013.
Our next meeting will be our Christmas party on Dec. 14, 2013 at 5 pm at the General Store.
