ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Speaking of the Big Island Rendezvous, students took a trip back in time today.
More than three thousand students over the past two days took part in the Big Island Rendezvous Education Days.
It gave students an inside look at what people had to do more than 200 years ago to live and survive.
Organizers say it shows students all the work that was needed to live and things weren’t always easy.
“It’s so easy now,” Organizer Perry Vining said. “You can go to the grocery store and get your groceries; your milk comes in a carton. You know you have air conditioning in the heat of summer and you get heat in the winter. That just wasn’t true 200 years ago, so they really understand it.”
It will be open to the public starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow at Bancroft Bay Park.
