June 23-25-Pennsylvania Monument Living History
Time for us all to once again gather after such a long period of not being able to do so at the School of the Soldier being held at the Layton Homestead located 1261 Simms Woods Road, Dover DE (on the NorthEast side of Dover) on Saturday April 29th. This will be a one day training to cover the basic and to expand our mission to support Fort Delaware. I have attached the schedule for the day with some firearms information. I would like to start no later than 9:30 am. Please be prompt, I will be there by 9:00 am. Also for your information and if you are available we have our first request from Fort Delaware to participate in a dedication at the Fort. It’s during the week so I know most of you are unavilable but if you’re free it’ll be something special. The event is noted below. If you would like to attend please let me know. The Governor will be there…..if your interested:
State Parks are planning a ribbon cutting ceremony at Fort Delaware to unveil the new Picnic Pavilion and heronry outlook completed this past year. They are expecting the Governor, Secretary of DNREC, State Park officials, and others to be in attendance, as well as planning the event with the inclusion of school kids visiting the fort.
The proposed date is Friday May 5 (tentative due to the schedule of Governor/Sec. of DNREC, time TBD), but we were wondering if you may be able to get a few reenactors to come out and help for the day/partake in the ceremony. I know it may be a bit tough being on a weekday, but any and all you may be able to get are more than welcome! If you would like to extend the invitation out to the folks in Vincent’s, they are more than welcome, as well.
See you at the school.
