Wet grounds at Van Rensselaer Point sent LHD into the Lockwood Arena. Students did get a walking tour on the trail system and saw the just blooming War of 1812 Peace Garden. This yearly event was attended by 4th and 7th grade students from Heuvelton and Ogdensburg.
Eighteenth-century re-enactors and heritage interpreters demonstrated open-hearth cooking, colonial toys, colonial lighting, tin-smithing, cannon shooting, cartridge rolling, bucket races, and other traditional activities.
Support, financial and material, is donated by the Heuvelton Parent Teacher Association, the Heuvelton Teacher’s Association, the Ogdensburg Education Association, and the Heuvelton Lions Club.
St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES coordinates a School/Curriculum Improvement Program, allowing the two participating schools to split the cost of the presenters and admission fees.
