In honor of Veterans Day and the WWI Centennial, the Norwalk Historical Society will be hosting a free lecture: "From Lima Beans to Libraries: How Food and Books Helped Win the Great War" on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 2:00pm at the townhouse at Mill Hill Historic Park. Join historians Dr. Allison Horrocks and Mary Mahoney for a lively lecture and discussion on local contributions to World War I. From gardening, canning and food conservation to prescribing books for servicemen and veterans, there were many ways for people, old and young, to serve. Learn how Nutmeggers mobilized for the Great War, both at home and abroad, one hundred years ago. Please consider donating a new or used book to the Society's Books for Veterans Drive for the Vietnam Veterans of America. Members of the American Legion Post 12 Auxiliary Poppy Program will also be accepting donations. RSVP at www.norwalkhistoricalsociety.org or call 203-846-0525.
