Monday November 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM.
Our November 26 program will commemorate the 100th anniversary of
the Armistice that ended World War I on November 11, 1918. We plan to
have an array of artifacts, documents, and graphics illustrating the county’s
involvement during the war. Bill Speiden, who has a remarkable collection of his
father’s World War I papers, will recount several anecdotes and we will discuss
the effects of the war on the people of Orange County. Sid Sidelko, member of
the Orange VFW, will provide information on Orange County World War I
veterans. We invite the audience to share stories and artifacts as well.
The meeting will be held at our Research Center at 130 Caroline Street and is free
and open to the public. Refreshments begin at 7:00 p.m., with the program to follow
at 7:30 p.m.
As usual, there will be no December meeting. Happy Holidays to all!
