November 15 Meeting To Feature the Home Front During World War I

October 31, 2017 Events No Comments

Join us Wednesday November 15 at 7:30 pm for our next general membership meeting, featuring a presentation by Peter John Williams about the home front during the World War I years.

As the centennial of World War I continues to be observed, Williams will be chronicling how the turbulent years of 1914-1918 brought people together despite tragedies both at home and abroad. He will also be sharing photographs, posters, and other imagery to paint a picture of how Philadelphia and the surrounding area looked during this era. He will also have copies of his book, Philadelphia: The World War I Years, available for purchase and signing.

For this meeting only, we’ll be gathering in the meeting room at the Lutheran Church of our Savior, 204 Wayne Ave., Haddonfield.

The event is free for members, with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers. We also invite you to bring a canned good or non-perishable food item to share with the Lutheran Church’s food bank collection.

For more information about World War I and its impact on Haddonfield and the surrounding area, make sure to plan a visit to the Historical Society’s temporary exhibit: “The First World War — Haddonfield and Abroad.” The temporary exhibit will open with a special “First Sunday” open house Sunday November 5 from 1-4 pm and will be available for viewing during Greenfield Hall’s open hours (generally Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1-4 pm).
