5:30 p.m.  Our Heroes’ Tree

7:00 p.m.  Conversations Across Generations


The Our Heroes’ Tree Program at 5:30 p.m. will feature donated and created ornaments on the patriotic Heroes’ Tree. Participants are encouraged to bring an ornament, copy of a picture or a story about a loved one who has served or is serving our country. Ornaments can also be made at the program and added to the tree. Any Veteran or service person wishing to share a story or a memory will have the opportunity to have that memory recorded on audiotape or videotape. The shared stories will be used in a future project honoring Veterans and will be made a part of the Local History and Genealogy collection.


The second program at 7:00 p.m. is a viewing of the Ball State Project, Conversations Across Generations: The Cantigny First Division Project Oral History. This moving video was created by students reaching out to hear and record the stories of Veterans. Discussion will follow.
