Loyal Order of Reenactment Enthusiasts (LORE) is organized around an educational goal. The purpose of the organization is to provide the means for history enthusiasts, educators and students to develop or expand their skills and background in various aspects of history, including, but not limited to Medieval, Renaissance, Age of Discovery, Victorian, Civil War, Western History, Exploration, Arts and Invention.
LORE is committed to presenting educational programs to schools, libraries and homeschooling organizations.
LORE has two current programs, first of which is Knights of the Fabled Reader.
This reading program is aimed at kindergarten through 6th grade readers (although older readers are welcome to participate!). To help build a love for reading, participating children are given a target of 5 books to read, which their teacher or parent verifies. Then, the children will write a short book report answering a few questions about their favorite book.
Children will be rewarded for their participation with a knighthood by Baron von Lauffer, including 1 child and 1 adult Renaissance ticket good for the day of the ceremony. Children will also be gifted a certificate of completion, pin, and commemorative book mark.
Applications for this program begin November 1st of each year and end on the last day of the Koroneburg Renaissance Festival of the following year.
The second program is the Great Minds Project.
This program, aimed at junior high students, is geared to build an interest in science, technology, engineering, art, and math, all driven by the spirit of enlightenment found in the Renaissance period.
Participating youth will design and build something that demonstrates a Renaissance era scientific or mathematical principle and use it to solve a modern problem. Participants will submit photos of their completed project, as well as an explanation of what it does and what problem it solves.
These inventors will be invited to present their project at the LORE building during the Koroneburg Festival. Participants and an accompanying adult will be given free admission to the festival on the day of presentation. Those who present will be given a certificate of completion and awarded the status of “Inventor” on stage by Baron von Lauffer.
Applications for this program begin November 1st of each year and must be submitted no later than 3 weeks before the start of the Koroneburg Renaissance Festival of the following year.
If you have a child who would like to apply for either of these programs please contact our Education Director, Lois Tunnel, at educationLORE@aol.com
