We are pleased to be part of this annual community celebration, and encourage you to attend all of the fun events planned for the day.

At the conclusion of the parade, participants and vehicles from the parade will be staged in the museum parking lot for viewing by the public. There will be a number of military vehicles and equipment on display, all made available by area veterans and re-enactor groups.

The Museum will be open and staffed consistent with the hours of the day’s events, in order for us to accommodate the interests and needs of the public. We will also have a “tent display” set up along Midway Park, where educational information can be obtained. Volunteers from the museum will be there to answer all of your questions.

27 September – JosMarie Vanderspek JosMarie was a young girl in the Netherlands during the Nazi occupation of WWII. She will talk about trying to survive during the occupation and the role of the Dutch underground in rescuing many Jewish people and allied pilots who were shot down.

If you know of someone who would love to share their military experience, please contact the museum with the person’s name and contact information and we will contact them for availability in our schedule.
