Frontier Muster & Trade Faire – CANCELLED

Dear Members and Friends of DBWTA,

It is with great disappointment and a heavy heart that I must inform you of the cancellation of all April events sponsored by the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association. This includes the April association meeting, all committee meetings, and, unfortunately, the Spring Muster planned for April 25, 26, and 27.

We have always thought of the Muster as a sort of “homecoming event” for all our re-enactor friends at the beginning of the living history event season, and for that reason, we are especially disappointed. However, we are committed to making the most responsible decisions possible, following federal, state, and DCR guidelines, to help defeat this horrible virus.

I hope we can continue to stay connected through email and social media until brighter days are with us once more.

I send prayers for good health, courage, and comfort to each and every one of you and your families as we all walk this difficult path.

God’s Peace,

Joan Short, President

Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association
