A presentation on the Lewis and Clark Expedition will be held Thursday in Waverly. Click to hear KMZU’s Chelsea Wade speak with Waverly Citizens for Progress Chairman John Hinz:
About seven schools will bring students to see the re-enactors. “They will be demonstrating making fire, making rope, clothing of 1804, military uniforms of 1804, the medicine of 1804, and how their campsites were handled at that time,” said Hinz. He also said the demonstrations tie in with lessons many kids are currently learning. “I find that a lot of the students, the schools right now are working on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, which is probably one of the most important happenings in United States history,” said Hinz. The free demonstrations are open to all. They will be held along the river in Waverly from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and a fireworks display will be held after dark.
