Volunteers Needed At Fort Verde State Historic Park
For Tom Sawyer Day

Campe Verde

Fort Verde State Historic Park in Camp Verde, invites families, civic groups, scout groups, church groups and all individuals interested to join us for one day to whitewash the fence that encloses the entire State Park parade ground area. As Tom would say, It is a privilege to help me whitewash the fence and we can trade for small treasures.

PRKS_FV_tom_sawyer.jpgBRUSH WITH TOM -- Tom Sawyer Day at Fort Verde State Historic Park brings images of a kid whitewashing a fence. Remember? You too can join in this kind of fun on Oct. 22 from 8 a.m.-noon. Afterward, you could settle down at the park with a good book such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Tom appeared on the sidewalk with a bucket of whitewash and a long-handled brush. He surveyed the fence, and all gladness left him and a deep melancholy settled down upon his spirit. Thirty yards of board fence nine feet high. Life to him seemed hollow, and existence but a burden. Sighing, he dipped his brush and passed it along the topmost plank. (From The Adventures of Tom Sawyer)

On Saturday, Oct. 22, from 8 a.m. to noon, we need your assistance and an artist's touch to whitewash the fence, just as Tom Sawyer was required to do on his Saturday. But Tom found a special way to get assistance. This is your cue to read this memorable story in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

All ages are welcome join us for an hour, or stay all morning! We supply the paint, water, snacks, and fun. If possible, bring your own paintbrush (we do have extras if you don't). Wear old clothes and hats.

Children 13 years and younger are welcome with parent supervision; teens 14 and older may participate with a signed parent release form.

Fort Verde: Well-Preserved

Fort Verde State Historic Park was a base for General Crook's U.S. Army scouts and soldiers in the 1870s and 1880s. From 1865 - 1891 Camp Lincoln, Camp Verde and Fort Verde were home to officers, doctors, families, enlisted men, and scouts.

The park is the best-preserved example of an Indian Wars period fort in Arizona. Several of the original buildings still stand and living history programs are scheduled periodically, giving visitors a glimpse into Arizona's history.

For more information, please contact the Fort Verde at (928) 567-3275. Fort Verde State Historic Park is located at 125 E. Hollamon Street in Camp Verde, Ariz.
