Dr. Robinson's 3-4 classroom blog from 2012-2016

The students in Dr. Robinson's 3-4 Team studied South Hero History for 6 years and took many field trips around town.
Click on this link to see where the students went around town and what townsfolk they met along the way.


At the end of 2018 Lake Champlain Access Television [LCATV] started filming our presentations. Their output is 2 to 4 times sharper than the videos I was putting up. That means it takes a little longer to get the video to start. [The reason I reduced the quality level of my videos.] Their production is different than mine and you will notice that immediately.
When you click on a video, it starts to load. It will take about 30 seconds [an eternity when you are waiting] to start playing. The speakers will start to sound and the video will look like it is not running for about 23 seconds. LCATV puts up an identification POSTER for those 23 seconds. Don't be alarmed, it is running if you can hear the sound.

South Hero Historical Society Program-”Eagle Camp”--7 pm, Fri., July 11, 2014--Folsom School

South Hero Historical Society Program-”Eagle Camp”--7 pm, Fri., July 11, 2014--Folsom School Do you think you know anyone in these pictures of Eagle Camp youngsters? The South Hero Historical Society’s monthly program was about Eagle Camp, a family camp which has been in South Hero for 124 years. Our presenter was William Drury whose great-grandfather started Eagle Camp and whose parents, Robert and Alice Drury, served as managers while Bill was growing up in South Hero. He talked about the origins of Eagle Camp and his recollections of times past. Eagle Camp has been managed by members of the Perry family for its entire existence except for a six-year period in the early 70s. Many people here in the Islands worked at Camp waiting tables, changing beds, and making the place run smoothly for vacationing families. Some of those families ended up living in the Islands.
