Maplewood Remembers World War I

November 19, 2017, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Durand-Hedden will observe the centennial year of America’s involvement in World War I with an exhibit on the newly rediscovered stories of the eight young men who lost their lives and for whom there is a memorial in Memorial Park and opportunities to learn about the lives of soldiers in the Great War, hear music of the period played by an authentically attired drum and bugle corps, and be persuaded by actress Theda Bara to buy war bonds. Young visitors will be able to participate in interactive activities such as creating their own persuasive patriotic propaganda for the war and making red paper poppies which symbolize remembrance.
