NEWSLETTER OF THE TWENTIETH LEGION
Vol. XX, no. ix, September 2010
What, already? Well, it isn't snowing, yet,
but planning is under way for this year's Christmas shows, and they
want Romans. First up is Parkwood Baptist Church in Annandale,
VA, December 11-12. Public hours are from 4 to 8 PM (be there
about 3 to get ready!), and they promise food and child care.
Contact Sam Roberts at samrobertsiii AT cox DOT net, or 703-462-0042.
Since last year was the Walk Through Bethlehem at
the Adventist Headquarters, this should be the year for the Bethlehem
Market Place at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Silver Spring.
Probably the first weekend in December.
Remember, if you are new to this and want to
participate but do not have all your gear, don't worry! Just let
me know what event you plan to attend, and what clothing or equipment
you need, and we can arrange to loan you stuff. Come on out!!
CULTURE A LA CARTE
We went to this cultural event in Fredericksburg
last year and had a good time. They attract school kids (and
adults!) from all over the area, and will be making a special effort to
get Latin students this year. The date is Saturday March 5, from
11 AM to 4 PM, and the location is Riverbend High School (different
site from last year but not far away). It's an indoor event, so
no weather worries or tent, and there will be lots of visitors.
MORE DISTANT EVENTS
Alec Cunningham has information on a number of other
Celtic/Scottish festivals, so contact him if you are up for either of
Williamsburg Highland Festival, October 2
Richmond Highland Games and Celtic Festival, October 23-24
Our compatriots in Legio IX Hispana will have
several participants at the Williamsburg event, at least.
MILITARY HISTORY WEEKEND, Williamsburg, VA
I've been contacted a few times about this annual event, being held
this year on October 15-17. It includes wargaming, military
modeling, talks and book signings by veterans, historical
demonstrations, and more. They'd love to get a few Romans.
