WAUSEON—The Wauseon Public Library is joining with thousands of veterans’ organizations and social service agencies to honor and remember our nation’s veterans. To kick off Veterans’ Events across Northwest Ohio, the library will be hosting a Veterans’ Movie Marathon with patriotic cupcakes on Monday, November 10 from 3-7:30 p.m.
“Please take a few moments out of your busy schedule to remember and honor our veterans, and thank them for their service and the freedoms they fought to protect,” encouraged Library Director Amy Murphy. “In his 2009 Veterans Day address, President Obama shared, ‘Ninety-one years ago today, the battlefields of Europe fell quiet as World War I came to a close. But we don’t mark this day each year as a celebration of victory, as proud of that victory as we are. We mark this day as a celebration of those who made victory possible. It’s a day we keep in our minds the brave men and women of this young nation—generations of them—who above all else believed in and fought for a set of ideals.’”
The Wauseon Public Library will be showing veterans movies from 3-7:30 p.m. and will have a book display, highlighting and remembering our Northwest Ohio veterans.
The library will also be hosting a Make & Take Patriotic Cupcake Evening. Children may stop in the library any time between 3-7:30 p.m. to decorate a cupcake for their favorite veteran to share with him or her the following day on Veterans’ Day.
