Volunteer Training Weekend

Last weekend we attended a training weekend at Jamestown in preparation for the 400th Anniversary Celebrations going on in May. Lots of things happening in Jamestown this year.

Cindy is the Fort supervisor and she does a fantastic job of organizing the bunch of rabble called re-enactors. We had some class room stuff (teaching methodology, women in 17th century England, Angolan society, Powhatan society) and some getting out and viewing the buildings and the interpretative goal behind them.

On Saturday because we had a critical mass of Gardners members in one location we had a meeting! Surprise! The hotel was cool and let us use their breakfast room as long as we cleaned up. Then of course we hung around and stitched, conversed, and negotiated. It was a good time.
