On Saturday, July 17th, La Compania de Juan Ponce de Leon (The Company of Juan Ponce de Leon) will host classes on the basic, historically accurate, early 16th-century garb and personal gear that will be required of our group's members. These classes –"What to Bring with You on Your Voyage to the New World" – will be the first in a series in our Colegio de Juan Ponce de Leon (College of Juan Ponce de Leon). The Colegio's classes will be designed to help get our volunteers accurately kitted out and prepared for la Compania's proposed April 2011 "First Landing" re-enactment and Florida's 500th anniversary observances in 2013.
Additional information on these classes is attached. Participation in these classes and the class materials will be limited *solely* to paid members of la Compania.
