Join the Varnum Continentals Historic Militia on Saturday, July 22, from 10 AM to 2 PM for an informative cannon drill at the Varnum House Museum, 57 Peirce St. East Greenwich, RI (right behind town hall). At the cannon drill, historic militia members will demonstrate the equipment and procedures used to load a cannon in preparation for firing and review safety procedures (the cannon will NOT be fired). After the drill, we’ll be painting the cannon; we welcome your assistance.
While on the Varnum House Museum grounds, visitors can also visit the House’s period herb garden, which was designed and maintained by URI Master Gardeners. We look forward to seeing you at the Varnum House Museum!
The event is free and open to the public. Check out the Facebook Event Link.
