The Forest County Historical Society honored all our local Veterans by inviting them and our community to come together. The History Museum opened on Monday November 11 from 2-4.
Many veterans and visitors, including Senator Scott Hutchinson and Eric Cepek, Veteran Affairs of Forest County checked out our Veterans Room, which is curated by the local AmVets organization. Everyone seemed impressed with the artifacts and information we have on display.
Punch and cookies were served and the highlight for many was the entertainment this year. We had Amanda Hetrick, Superintendent of Forest County Schools, Carl Olson, regionally known Jazz musician, Carole Hall and Elisha Pospisil on hand at 2:00 to play the piano and lead a sing-along of old-fashioned patriotic songs. The foursome brought the house down with their rendition of Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy.
A special thanks to all who put this celebration together and participated.
