Traveling Tent To Draw Record Crowds! PDF Print E-mail

The Georgia Society’s Traveling Tent program has started off the new year with a bang!  With a grant from the Georgia Fellows we now have an officer’s folding desk and chair, a 15-inch tin lantern, a wooden bucket, and eating utensils for two with which to furnish the tent.  These and other planned items will greatly enhance the educational experience and opportunity for publicity for this new program.  If you have some spare items that would fit into a living history encampment display or would like to make a donation toward improving the display, please contact the education committee.  Lyn Cash of the Joseph Habersham Chapter has created a shoulder yoke or water yoke suited for carrying two buckets of water at a time for display at living history events.  Now we need a second bucket!

We will also soon be figuring out a means of setting up the tent indoors without the use of ground stakes so that it can be used in school auditoriums and other such sites.

Requests have been quickly coming in for use of the tent this year.  Some of these include “Georgia on My Mind Day” in Sylvania on March 30, Foxfire Heritage Days in Mountain City on April 13-14, Patriots Day in Blairsville on April 19, Armed Forces Day in Auburn on May 19, St. Simons on October 2-4 (pending), and the Mule Days Celebration in Washington on October 6.  Wow!

Can a second tent be too far in our future?

Upon contacting the local Parkview High School History Club about presenting a Bronze Good Citizenship Medal to their President for her leadership in advancing education on the subject of the Revolutionary War, we accomplished a variety of goals.

  • We were invited to give lectures to three of their high school advanced placement classes on the subject of  “Washington’s Spies” and SAR youth programs.
  • We were scheduled to present the Traveling Trunk to the History Club after school.
  • We initiated discussions about making donations to the school library on colonial history.
  • We encouraged the club to prepare a program to present to our local Button Gwinnett Chapter.
  • We solicited interest in SAR’s essay contest.

The Marshes of Glynn Chapter has been an integral part of one of the military history clubs in their area in terms of encouraging study of the Revolutionary War.  They will present a medal at Brunswick High School this Fall.

Any chapter recognizing a local History Club President with a Citizenship Medal or Bronze Good Citizenship Medal from September through December 2011 will have the cost of the medal reimbursed by the Education Committee by submitting a copy of the invoice with information on the name, club, and school to Terry Manning by January 15, 2012. Medals or pins will also be made available at the Fall Meeting of the BOM.  Please contact the Education Committee Chairman if you anticipate requesting one.
