More than 70 people attended the 11th Annual Veterans History Project Breakfast last Friday, including 24 local veterans. The first president of the Niles Library Board and World War II Army veteran Rudolph Hazucha was present for the first time.
The Veterans History Breakfast honors local veterans who have participated in the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project by sharing their stories about serving their country. Since 2005, more than 70 veterans have participated in the Veterans History Project and their interviews can be read and listened to online at www.nileslibrary.org/veterans-history-project.
The breakfast was concluded with a performance by the Sweet Reminder Duo as the Anderson Sisters, who entertained the crowd with a tribute to the music that once uplifted and unified a nation.
Be sure to stop by the special Veterans Day display case on the Main Level through November.
