The following was submitted by the City of Somerville: 

Help the City re-live Paul Revere's historic ride from Boston through Somerville and onto Lexington and Concord. Volunteers are needed for the City's annual Patriots Day Colonial Fair at Foss Park on Monday, April 21.

Volunteers will help residents learn about life in the late 1700s by leading Colonial-era games, serving refreshments, and distributing and stamping Colonial Passports. To set the scene, all volunteers will dress in Colonial-era clothing (we have clothing to lend or tips for what to wear!). Weíll also teach you games to lead including hop scotch, catís cradle, hoop rolling and ring toss.

The events are sponsored by the City's Historic Preservation Commission, Historic Somerville and the Somerville Museum, and will be held rain or shine on Monday, April 21 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at Foss Park.

For more information, contact the Historic Preservation Commission at 617-625-6600 ext. 2500 or email BWilson@somervillema.gov.
