Upcoming Society Program Features The Red Arrow Singers

 

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will host its fourth Society Program on Sunday, August 17 at 2 pm, featuring the Red Arrow Singers. The program will combine Native American-style drumming, story-telling and a ‘fancy dancer’. The program is free and open to the public. The lecture is sponsored by a grant awarded to the museum by the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts, Inc.

The Red Arrow Singers participate in a number of activities which promote the preservation of Native American culture including traditional story-telling, flute music, ‘fancy dancing’ and traditional Native American style drumming. Member Scott Atherton recently instructed the History Day Camp students at the museum in several basic drumming techniques. This instruction was done in preparation for their participation in the Grand Slam Parade on Wednesday, August 13. The Day camp ‘graduates’ will appear as part of the contingent of marchers representing the Thomas T. Taber Museum.

On the third Sunday of each month (May through October) the museum is open for touring with no admission charged. The museum is located at 858 West Fourth Street, Williamsport. There is ample parking behind the museum and on the street.
