    Park Rx: Art Heals with the Susquehanna Art Museum

    Time:
    6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
    Location:
    Fort Hunter Park

    Join the Susquehanna Art Museum and Instructor Nancy Mendes in making art that can serve many purposes: releasing tension, meditation, expressing emotions, and helping you to connect with yourself.  Experiment with color mixing and define the meaning of individual colors in your own life. Does red or purple express anger? Is green about envy and jealousy or money? It’s all up to you! Relax and enjoy the experience.

    The class will take place outdoors, in the East Pavilion (barn side.) In the event of inclement weather, it will move to an inside location. All materials will be provided.

    This is class is part of the Park Rx series of programs sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield.  Thank you to Highmark for helping us make this affordable and accessible for everyone.

    Participants should:

    • Come dressed in old clothing or bring a painting smock as the paint will stain if it comes in contact with clothing and footwear.
    • Bring newspaper or plastic for their trunk or car so they can transport their artwork home while protecting their vehicle’s interior or trunk from paint that may not yet be dry.

    $5.00 per person, per class

    Virtual Illustrated Talk: A Discussion of the French and Indian War in America, Pennsylvania, and in the Lives of Soldiers

    Time:
    7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    Location:

    The Friends of Fort Hunter Lecture Series virtually presents Lynn Otto and Don Cramer offering a reflection on the origins, events, and impact of the French and Indian War, as well as a discussion of the uniforms, weapons, and life of a soldier in this conflict.  England and France have a long history of military conflict in their respective quests for global influence. In the middle of the 18th century, their rivalry spilled into North America in a conflict that is known as the Seven Year’s war, or French and Indian War. Fort Hunter was part of a line of defense and a supply depot at this time.

    Lynn Otto has been involved in reenacting and Living History since 1984. He is currently the commander of the 1st and 3rd Battalions of the Pennsylvania Regiment, a Pennsylvania Provincial reenactment group of the French and Indian War and sister group to Regiment De La Reine. His interest is focused on the 1730 to 1760 time period of the 18th century in Pennsylvania.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Don Cramer has been a living history reenactor for over 35 years. Much of his focus has been on the period around the French and Indian War, and he currently serves as the unit commander of the Regiment de La Reine, a reenacting club headquartered in Southeast Pennsylvania.

    The virtual lecture is free but registration is required.  A link to view the presentation will be emailed in the week prior to the talk.  Click here to register.
