On August 13, 2009 at 2 p.m., in honor of the Quadricentennial, the Washington County Historical Society will present “Meet Samuel de Champlain,” a first person account of 17th century life in the colony of New France. Don Thompson, re-enactor will present the program wearing an authentic costume. He will use artifacts and anecdotes.
The program will be held in Whitehall at Cook’s Island Recreation Center on Main Street. The program is designed to appeal to just about every age – from Grade 3 on up. The performance is free and open to the public. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Don Thompson is a retired social studies teacher who divides his year between Florida and Vermont. He participates in archaeological digs every summer, usually at Rogers Island in Fort Edward, NY.
