Colonial Man teaches the art of Candle Making

Students at ASK learn the art of making candles

San Ladley visits ASK to teach students about colonial life

ASK Elementary School - Mr. Sam Ladley has been coming to ASK to do a colonial presentation for our 4th graders for over 20 years. He lives in Maine, but has strong roots in Orange County. His wife, Beth, is descended from the original Bull family; one of the first settlers in our county. Mr. Ladley has extensive knowledge of colonial life. He discusses this with the students as he teaches them how to write using quill pens, and hand-dip candles. Thanks to the generosity of the ASK PTA, students get to keep the candles and also take home a clean quill pen.
