Each spring, Susan and I have the honor of designing an exhibit in honor of Memorial Day. Though the exhibit is on display for only a few hours during our Memorial Day program at Montgomery Cemetery, we take a lot of time to choose artifacts and papers to display. This year at Saturday’s program you’ll be able to see one of our most exciting acquisitions of the past year, John Jacob Scholl’s diaries. Plus, we’ll have a display of some of our county’s men and women who have served our country. I’ve included some of their pictures here. We hope this display of regular people who answered the call will encourage visitors to share stories of their own family heroes.

I hope you’ll join us this Saturday at Montgomery Cemetery for our program honoring the veterans buried in the cemetery. We’ll walk to the graves of several prominent people in the cemetery, lay wreaths, and learn about their lives.
The event begins at 11am at the gatehouse, located at 1 Hartranft Ave., West Norriton, PA.
