Founder’s Day

September 5, 2019 - September 8, 2019

Members of the Historic Florida Militia and our friends from outside our group are invited to participate in the Founder’s Day / Landing celebrations on Saturday September 7, 2019. We are looking for 16th Century historically clad men and women, (Historic to St. Augustine) to be a part of the Landing ceremony on the grounds of the Mission Nombre de Dios. We have a few spots available for flag bearers, cannoneers, musketeers, Spanish Soldiers, Native Americans and settlement folk.

There will be two practices for this event. The first will take place at the Mission on Thursday evening August 29th starting at 6:00pm. This will be a walkthrough practice and does not require garb.

The second practice on Friday September 6th, also at the Mission, will be a “dress rehearsal” and will start at 6:00pm. The Mission will supply dinner that evening for those involved in the rehearsal.

Also there will be a weekend encampment at the Fountain of Youth. Set up will be Friday Sept 6 and take down will be Sunday Sept 8.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Bob Alvarez at ribob2013@aol.com. or private message me and he will fill you in on all the details.
