Garst Lecture Series Continues November 7th

On Sunday, November 7, Garst Museum will present the third in a series of lectures open to the public. Featured will be a panel of local veterans discussing their own experiences in military service. These veterans include patriotic servicemen and women from World War 11 to the present time. This is a real, live history lesson !

The event starts at 2:00 p.m. and is free to the public. Jack Harless will be the moderator. The lecture series are sponsored by the HOPE Foundation and Harry Stephens Memorial grants.

Garst Museum’s military exhibit is comprehensive, fascinating, and dedicated to our country’s military history. The 1812 uniform was actually worn almost 200 years ago!

There are uniforms and souvenirs from several wars; local medal winners; nurses uniforms; an Air Force One pilot’s uniform, etc. The exhibit is on the second floor (up the stairs). The museum has long wished for easier access as it’s not an easy a climb for most visitors. On the wish list: an elevator!
