That’s what the Director says took place – and the hot dogs were excellent.

By Barbara Teatero, Director of Museums

BURLINGTON, ON august 4, 2011 – For a family, fun-filled day our Joseph Brant Day festival is all about offering a wide variety of activities for multiple audiences yet still being true to our mandate to preserve, present and interpret the history of Burlington, of which Joseph Brant is a part. Many people stopped by our museums tables to learn more about the collections, the Renovation and Expansion of Joseph Brant Museum, Joseph Brant himself, and Marianne tells me she sold several copies of our book, Joseph Brant, Thayendanegea. Children loved making their native clan pendant and learning about its origins as well as having their picture taken beside our “Joe”. I don’t know that Joe went missing, he may not have been there in person (that would have been quite a feat since he died in 1807!) but he and Native Culture was woven throughout the entire event. YES, the hot dogs were good (excellent actually) and so was Sophisticated Swing!”
