WWII Vets speak at
Museum May 28
Three WWII veterans will speak at
the Endless Mountains War Memorial
Museum in Sonestown on May 28.
There is no admission fee for
the event, but donations will be
greatly accepted, as the museum
is trying to raise money for expansion of an additional wing as new
space for displays and donated
memorabilia is vitally needed.
Ground has already been broken
and a two-year building project has
started with plans to complete the
concrete foundation this year and
building construction in 2017.
The May 28th event will feature
Mr. Charles Libby who worked
in a local CCC Camp before his
service in the WWII European
Theatre as a command car driver.
He also has recently completed a
book titled "From The Command
Car" and will have signed copies
available on the 28th.
Also speaking at the Museum, for
the first time, will be Charles Brookings who served on a PT (patrol torpedo) boat during the war.
Last but not least will be our own
Dick Donald, who is becoming quite
famous with his talks of his life and
wartime experiences surrounding
WWII and Korea. Dick is also working on his own book which he will be
publishing in the near future.
The event will be held 10:00 a.m
to 5 p.m., at the museum, on Main
Street in Sonestown. For more
info please email [email protected]
or call 570-482-2610.
