On Saturday, March 19th community members met to listen and share their stories about Fall River. We listened to a winter story; as children they would water the path up from the Fall River Train Station to slide down just when most people would get home from work. We were also intrigued by a story about a large big black cat that had been seen in our region. Stories about the history and the present time came to live. Thank you to all 16 community members that came out to share their stories and ideas for the building of the giant puppets.
Our giant puppets will depict the past and present time. Two Historical Figures where chosen that will represent the early settlers and celebrate the founders of schools and churches. A Dragon will be in the parade as well to represent the Lockview Dragon Football Team. The group also likes to create a Paliated Woodpecker and a Skateboarder.
We are looking forward to our first hands-on workshop on Saturday, May 7th from 1-5 p.m. at the LWF Hall (Bay area). Please contact us if you have any questions.
