Once again this year the Moody Museum will be honoring local veterans on the Sunday before Veterans Day. Local veterans and/or their families are invited to bring to the museum shadowboxes that tell the story of their military service. For those who do not already have a shadowbox the museum has boxes available for loan. They can be obtained at the museum during regular hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 p.m.
The program will get underway at 3 p.m. with a flag raising ceremony, followed by the National Anthem. The guest speak, Scott Dean, is the new commander of the local American Legion Post. “This seems like an appropriate choice for the Moody Museum because Gov. Dan Moody was the first commander of the local American Legion post,” Susan Komandosky, chair of the museum advisory board, said.
Following the talk guests will be invited inside to view the shadowboxes and other displays and enjoy refreshments.
