There are still open spots in the sewing workshops to be held on April 11/12. Send Hazel Dickfoss your deposit to hold your spot (info in e-news or PM us for contact info). Henry Cooke is the presenter for military coats, Hallie Larkin , 18th century stays and Stephanie Smith, the English Gown. There will also be a free fitting workshop on Friday the 10th for men’s clothing with Henry. If you don’t sew, we have volunteers that will sew for you, contact Hazel for details. If we don’t fill the workshop we will offer the remaining spots to non-members at a slightly higher cost.
A memorial service for Connie VandePolder will be held Saturday, March 21 at 11:00 a.m. at Westwood United Methodists Church, 538 Nichols Rd. Kalamazoo, MI. Brian is aware that the Kalamazoo trader show is going on and said that period attire is welcome, although there will be no firing salute. Memorials may be made to the NWTA Scholarship fund.

I volunteer with the BSA in Southwest Michigan, and they asked me tonight if I could get some Revolutionary War Reenactors together for their 75th Anniversary Camporee the weekend of April 25-26. The event is supposed to have around 200 scouts and around 300-400 public a day. The event will be open to public as well as scouts. The event will be held at the Vicksburg Historical Village in Vicksburg Michigan. Food will be provided for participants (Dinner Friday night, three meals Saturday, Breakfast and Lunch on Sunday). Hours will be 9-5 with a potential for a special activity Saturday evening for the scouts that are camping. All reenactors are encouraged to camp Friday and Saturday nights. Above ground fire pits will be provided since it is a request of the village that we not dig fire pits. There are no tacticals scheduled but if enough reenactors come, one can be arranged on Saturday. Musket demonstrations are permitted in camp, and open camps are a requirement. Please RSVP by April 10th if interested since food and space need to be planned for. There is no cost to participate (the BSA is donating the food), so please only register if you are planning to attend.
To Register or if you have any questions.
