To the Washington Co. Militia,
The Siege of Fort Watauga is in 15 days. Can you believe it?! It promises to be a great event as we have some new sutlers coming, some new participants taking part, and of course all our old friends will be together again. As the host unit for this event let’s do what we do best, and that is make our guests feel welcomed and appreciated.
As usual I will need some help setting up and serving the dinner on Saturday Evening. Please let me know if you can lend a hand.
I would also like to have an information table this year with schedules, maps, a donation box, and general direction for people with questions. Let me know if you would be willing to tend the information booth for a time during the weekend. I’m thinking two hour increments each day: 10-12, 12-2, and 2-4. I am also going to ask the friends group to help with this.
I am still putting the schedule together so if you would like to do a program, presentation, talk, seminar, or display please let me know ASAP. We want this event to showcase the best we have to offer as living historians. You all are a very talented and knowledgeable group of people and the park is blessed to have you.
As always if you have any thoughts, questions, comments or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me any time.
I am starting to get a few auction items in. However, we are nowhere near where we need to be. Please, if you can, dig around and find some of that “stuff” you no longer use (period correct of course) and donate to a very worthy cause.
