Caldwell Co., Ky. 5th Grade Students
Pennyrile Forest State Park, Dawson Springs, Ky.
Once again Richard P'Pool was the coordinator for the re-enactors for Thursday night.
Everything went as planed. That day the 5th graders participated in several hands on crafts and learned many new things
As it begain to get dark the children were brought and seated in a semicircle. There were bon-fires to help stay warm and for lighting.
Judge Bill Cunningham was once again the narrator for the evening. As Judge Cunningham told the story of each person that had shaped and molded
Caldwell Co., Ky. history, those persons appeared out of the darkness with
"Hello The Camp."
At that point Judge Cunningham invited them into the Camp to tell the students "their story."
Below are photos of some of those people.
