Movie Night – The Eleanor Roosevelt Story @ Roosevelt Park Theatre
Jul 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:15 pm

An admiring, uncritical biography of Eleanor Roosevelt, released three years after her death. The film focuses solely on her, beginning with her unhappy childhood after both her parents had died by the time she was 10. In 1905, she married her fifth cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was elected President in 1932. She always was concerned for the oppressed, and was a great supporter of civil rights, even if it was unfashionable. As First Lady, she traveled ceaselessly visiting the troops in the Second World War. After the war she became a US representative to the United Nations, and chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights, where she was a key contributor to the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Old-Fashion Taffy Pull @ Roosevelt Park Visitor Center Kitchen Shelter
Jul 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

During this activity we will be making and pulling Taffy.Taffy is a type of candy similar to toffee. Taffy is made by stretching or pulling a sticky mass of boiled sugar, butter or vegetable oil, flavorings, and coloring until it becomes aerated (meaning that tiny air bubbles are produced, resulting in a light, fluffy and chewy candy. When this process is complete, the taffy is rolled, cut into small pastel-coloured pieces and wrapped in wax paper to keep it soft. It usually is fruit-flavoured, but other flavors are common as well, including molasses and the classic unflavored taffy.
This Event is limited to 15 Children. Please call ahead to reserve your spot.

Story Time “Remember Me: Tomah Joseph’s Gift to Franklin Roosevelt @ Roosevelt Park Visitor Center Visitor Center Kitchen Shelter
Jul 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

In REMEMBER ME, by Donald Soctomah and Jean Flahive, readers learn how Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the man who would become the thirty-second president of the United States, joyfully spent his boyhood summers on Campobello Island. There he met Tomah Joseph, a Passamaquoddy elder and former chief who made his living as a guide, birchbark canoe builder, and basket-maker. Authors Soctomah and Flahive imagine the relationship that developed between these two as Tomah Joseph taught young Franklin how to canoe and shared some of the stories and culture of his people. A beautifully decorated birchbark canoe that he made for Franklin remains at Campobello Island, a tangible reminder of this special friendship.
