STEP BACK IN TIME & EXPERIENCE HISTORY

With Vern Frykholm’s portrayal of our first Commander-in-Chief and President of the United States, that’s exactly what you can do!

Vern brings a real characterization of George Washington to a variety of venues – from the Northwest Colonial Festival each August near Sequim, Washington, to classrooms across the State – to private parties and groups who would like an entertaining way to learn more about this important historical man and the times in which he lived and worked.

 

 

GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS

A typical presentation will be 15-25 minutes with 15-25 minutes of questions. If desired, George is then available for photos afterwards.

Twenty-five percent of those presentations have been to public and private elementary, middle school and high school students. George shares with them many of the events that surrounded the founding of this country, encourages them to be young women and men of good character, and inspires them to become involved and active in the community and our country. He challenges the older students and adults to consider what “We the People” means.

 

 

 

 

ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON SPEAKS

Vern Frykholm has been portraying George Washington since February, 2012. He was inspired to do so after listening to Dr. Peter Lillback talk about his book, “George Washington’s Sacred Fire” in March, 2011 at the George Washington Inn near Sequim, Washington.

In July, 2012, Vern joined 50 other people and toured Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a week with Dr. Lillback, who showed us many important places involving the American Revolution. They ended the tour at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and listened to Dean Malissa, the foremost portrayer of Washington in the nation. Vern was so impressed by his presentation, that Vern was convinced the State of Washington deserved its own George Washington.

Since then, Vern has made more than 300 appearances, talked to more than 20,000 people, and have been the keynote speaker at various state and regional conferences.

Vern’s goal is to present those revolutionary times from the view point of  Washington as historically accurate as possible. It is not only educational, but entertaining and inspirational for young people through retirees and from businessmen to service clubs and churches.

Thank you for your interest. Looking forward to further conversations.
