Boston National Historical Park: Week 2

Greeting Pro Rangers and followers. The week two in Boston for Mark and I was a fantastic one. In our second week we had interpretation training with the other interp seasonals at the park. The training involved four days of  visiting different historical sites in the area of the park, going on tours, and in-class lectures. Mark was able to go a boat patrol ride-along with one of the LE rangers. The two traveled out to the Harbor isalnds and Mark got to see the different sites that Boston National Historical Park had to offer. He also observed the Ranger stop two inidivuals who were collecting Sea Glass, which is illegal.
Our week would top off on Friday, May 25 here in Boston with the grand-opening of Fanheuil Hall!
On the day of the grand opening Mark and I were assigned to work at Fanheuil Hall. There we took part in crowd control as a ceremony took place involving our Superintendent, Cassius Cash, and the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, and other delegates. After the cutting of the ribbon, Ken Salazar then greeted all members of the staff present inside Fanheuil Hall, and thereafter photos were taken. Upon the departure of the delegates, Fanheuil Hall officially opened to the public. There was a constant abundance of vistors at the desk in need of help with maps, and what to do in Boston. On Sunday, we arrived back to Fanheuil Hall and worked there again for interp.
And now for the part you've all been waiting for PICTURES!
