Revolutionary War hero, Ned Hector: A great program-part 1

The Good for the Soul committee and the Toms River NAACP hosted a great program Saturday in Mancini Hall about Revolutionary War hero Ned Hector.  Presented by reenactor Noah Lewis, he told about colonial-era customs that were followed by all people, including the difficulties blacks and the Irish faced.

Hector engaged the audience in his program, involving them in a simulated cannon demonstration.  The following photo was taken as he instructed newly (but not willingly) recruited bombadier, oh let’s call her Judy.

Saturday’s program also included a soul food tasting by the NAACP and a performance by TRHS North’s ‘nStep.

An old saying goes: Nobody is useless.  Everyone has a purpose, even if it’s to serve as a bad example.  Here “Judy” served to demonstrate the role of women during the colonial period.  Good, bad or indifferent?  You decide.
