Storytime at the Gathering

Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution invited school age children to a storytime at the Gathering at Garst on Saturday, July 25th. There were sixteen children participating in the event.

The storytime was held at the Burkett Encampment Tent. DAR member Karen Burkett aand HoDAR John were in period dress in order to give a visual of the time period. John portrayed Fort GreeneVille's hero, Josiah Hunt. Karen told the story of family heros from the book "Customs and Traditions" written by Bobbie Kalman & Tammy Evert. Afterwards there was a drawing for a copy of the book. The winner was 6 yr. Old Ryan Fritz of New Madison, OH. The book was donated by the Garst Gift Shop to the DAR chapter's literacy program. Members of the chapter provided refreshments to the participating children.
