Legends of the Wilderness – Dec 7

The Virginia Public Library and Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present Homeward Bound Theatre’s Legends of the Wilderness with Jacques La Christian, a free program being offered for ages 8-adults.

Experience the wilderness through reenactment of the 1800s with French Canadian Voyageur Jacques La Christian. See Indian beadwork, flintlock rifles and pistols, along with furs of various types used in the fur trade in the U.S. and Canada.

The event will happen on December 7th at 11:00am and will be hosted at the Roosevelt Elementary Gym, across from the library building. This event is open to the public! If you are a community member who would like to attend, please enter at the Gym entrance (Door 11). There will be bleacher seating available – so bring some padding if you want to sit in comfort!
