Patrick Henry at the Hunt for Henrico History

1 Feb

Last Saturday the Department of Recreation and Parks hosted the first Hunt for Henrico History. The event was held at the Deep Run Recreation Center at Deep Run Park. Over 800 people came to the day-long event to learn more about the history of Henrico County. It was a fun day and I’m proud to say that we were part of the fun. Our very own Mr. Chris from the Twin Hickory Library was asked to revisit his Time Traveling Librarian role and bring Patrick Henry to the children at the event. He graciously accepted and we set about producing a new video for the day.

Due to a scheduling conflict our previous Patrick Henry was not able to attend this event. Luckily, Chris was able to convince a historical reenactor from St. John’s Church to play Patrick for us. He did a great job!

We performed two shows and were able to entertain many kids and adults. The video below is of the second show. It’s about 20 minutes and is very entertaining. Hope you enjoy it.

    So glad to see this in its full form. Loved it! Can’t wait to see the next production.
    Good work Mr. Chris and Mr. Matt!
