Teaching & Sharing Centers - Michigan Living History Encounters



william and the [original] T&SC had been behind the scenes help with the fur trader (voyageur) encampment during Grand Ledge's Fall Color Cruise & Island Festival since 1990.  In October 2005, it became the responsibility of the new T&SC organization.  Then, we lost Kenn Kuester in 2010, our initial MLHE motivator, who transitioned that year to be with the Lord.  However, the donation of his equipment and materials in 2011 to the T&SC enabled us to look ahead to a future for MLHE. 

Michigan Living History Encounters (originally Encampment) is a branch of the Teaching & Sharing Centers non-profit organization.  Though as an active teaching & sharing center it currently only exists four days per year, it is an exceptional learning experience for those who take the time to visit with our presenters.  This program is in its infancy, and has great potential for expansion and involvement.  Anyone interested in MLHE activities or possibilities should contact us.  (We also filed American Living History Encounters as a DBA). 

Several photos from Michigan Living History Encounters appear below.  For more images visit our MLHE Facebook page (see our links section), or the www.wsharing.com website in the Scrapbook Photos section.  Look for "Fall Festival Time In GL." 


Though others took care of the details, the MLHE founder can rightly be said to be Kenn Kuester, who is seen below teaching in his role as Father Marquette.  MLHE continues in his memory.  


Supporting some of our member's involvement in historical re-enacting, the T&SC organization (non-profit 501c3 public charity) sponsored the Michigan Living History Encampment (now Michigan Living History Encounters), beginning in 2005, as a part of Grand Ledge's Fall Color Cruise & Island Festival.  The below photos are from that first 2005 encampment.  Kenn Kuester, who died in 2010, played the role of Father Marquette and was the motivating force behind MLHE.  From set-up [upper left] on Thursday through the three days of the festival we were blessed in our sharing and a good time was had by participants and visitors alike.  MLHE remains committed to those ideals.
