 Folks lined up for the flying pancake breakfast and visited under the shade trees. The living history team mingled with the crowd giving the visitors opportunity to learn more about the times of our Revolution. A display of a bell tent of the era and camp equipment was especially exciting for the children. Several times during the morning the two drummers called the soldiers to form up, march to the pier and fire musket volleys. This year our two drummers Kerry and Steve were joined by 11 y.o. James with his fife.
 The Declaration of Independence was read by S.A.R. member Kevin. Wayzata Mayor Wilcox introduced veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam giving the crowd a brief biography of the service of each and a tribute also to those attending who have served in the armed forces.
 Attendance this year finished at 1,416.
The living history team this year: From the 7th PA re-enactment group, Kerry, Spencer and Dave. D.A.R. Terri and Gigi.  SAR CG members Kevin, Steve, Paul, John, Tom, Craig. Assisted by James, a C.A.R. member.
