For the first time in the five years since the pioneer encampment has been held on the Martin- Perry House lawn, we had to cancel some of our planned activities. The Friday evening bonfire, in the midst of major rain from hurricane Nicole, had to be cancelled, but inspite of cold, damp and snow flurry weather on Saturday, events went on as scheduled. RJ and four other reenactors were on hand to talk about pioneer life to those who braved the weather. Some of the activities were moved inside where it was warm and dry. The inclement weather just made the experience more authentic. Pioneer life was not easy. We're hoping for better weather the next time.
