Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Thank you for joining us at the 2020 Haynes Colonial Festival on March 25th from 9-12. We are very excited for a
morning of colonial era crafts, games, and experiences that will bring the kids back in time to the
year 1750 in Colonial New England. This is also the final cultural festival for students at Haynes,
so it is a very special experience.
If you participated in past Colonial Festivals, you will notice some new additions. This year the
students will each bring in their own snack, and will eat it at a designated snack station with their
tour guide. We also have several new stations including the game of stool ball, a Native
American talking stick craft, a sewing craft hosted by the Sudbury Historical Society, as well as
a colonial photobooth and frame craft activity. Each station will be 15 minutes in length, and
students will rotate through all the stations.
If you are signing up for a craft or game station, we will send an email with specific shopping
lists (if required) and directions. Please also note that set-up for stations will be the afternoon
before the festival, Tuesday, March 24th at 4:00pm.
Thank you again for volunteering and we very much appreciate your help! As you know, these
festivals are a wonderful learning experience for our kids and they depend on parental
involvement. We hope you enjoy sharing your special knowledge and skills on Colonial Day.
Please feel free to email any of us with questions.
