I spent the day today at Fort La Presentation in Ogdensburg,NY. I was the music person for the Living History day. There were about 15 stations that 279 seventh and fourth graders could visit throughout the day. Everyone had a wonderful day and enjoyed being outside along the river. At my station we sang 18th century folk songs and La Presentation, a song that Mrs. Madlin wrote about the history of the fort.
The weekend of July 17th there is a reenactment and many different people will be there to portray various parts of life as it was in the 18th century. I was very glad to be part of the activities today and look forward to checking out the reenactment this summer. I really learned a lot about the fort today and enjoyed singing with so many kids throughout the day. Everyone seemed to really enjoy watching them fire the canon at the end of the day. A really fun time was had by all.
