FRAMINGHAM — The Framingham History Center continued its Summertime on the Centre Common at Historic Village Hall with special guest, Larry Spotted Crow Mann, today, July 18.
Crow Mann passionately told the stories of his tribe, the Nipmuc People, as well as played his traditional drum and got everybody up and moving.
The kids laughed along with his energetic storytelling and the parents appreciated his important underlying messages such as the dangers of bullying.
Crow Mann made sure the kids understood these messages when asking them why they think he tells these stories.
It was a fun way to keep kids engaged while also teaching them life lessons and of course, history.
The Summertime on the Centre Common series is great for families because you learn about Framingham’s history in a unique and entertaining way and it is all for free.
There are still plenty of chances to attend one of these events, as they happen every Thursday morning through August 8.
Next week, on July 25th at 10:30 a.m. Big Joe the Storyteller will be stopping by historic Village Hall to teach about Framingham’s history in a fun and energetic way with his puppets and props. It will be the perfect event for families in the area!
