Celebrating Out Veterans
Friday, November 8th - 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Veterans' Day is Monday, November 11. Join us to hear Casa Italia Genealogy Manager Jennifer Holik talk about Stories of the Lost, which is a continuation of Finishing the Story. Learn how you can tell the stories of your soldiers who were 'Lost,' or those they left behind who 'Lost' something. We will talk about the soldier who died in service; the soldier who came home changed in some way; a family who lost a father, son, brother, sister, mother, wife; and those who lost the promise of a life without war. Handouts with resources to help trace your family's genealogy, locate military records, and write the family stories will be provided.
After the lecture join us for light refreshments and mix, mingle, and explore the Italian American Veterans Museum.
Fee: $10 per person
Pizza & light refreshments will be served
