"National Park Service, Weir Farm National Historic Site. This is Emma speaking." From answering phone calls, to leading hikes around Weir Pond, to cleaning art supplies, my internship here at Weir Farm National Historic Site has been a delight, and I am forever grateful to all the staff for welcoming all of us interns into the family. On my first day of work a month ago, I was given a bright orange pin that reads "Julian Weir Lives," but only recently have I discovered what these words mean to me. By passing along Julian Weir's story to visitors or walking past the same tree that he painted a hundred years ago, the spirit of Weir is alive every day and I am lucky enough to have been able to share this with others. Below is a picture of the final presentation that Alosha and I, along with the other interns put together for school about working at Weir Farm National Historic Site, and if I do say so myself, it was a hit! (Especially the giant paintbrush!)
Thank you to everyone who has been following our blogs and thank you to all the staff at Weir Farm National Historic Site!
