2pm Annual Meeting + Cyndee Schaffer: The Journey of Mollie’s War

October 15, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT

Annual Meeting election of officers and short reports on the financial health of the Museum and a wrap up of the year’s events. The meeting portion should last about 20 minutes.

The Museum welcomes Cyndee Schaffer, co-author of the award-winning Mollie’s War. Cyndee uses excerpts from her mother’s letters written home during WWII to provide a romantic yet frightful glimpse into the life of a woman in uniform during this crucial time in history.

Cyndee will detail her mother’s experiences from basic training in 1943 to a dramatic image of seeing the Statue of Liberty in the midst of darkness in November 1945 when she returned home.
