Last summer, Congress passed a resolution to mark the second Sunday of August as a day to commemorate the efforts of millions of veterans who served in World War II. The name given to this special day is “Spirit of ‘45 Day.”
The first Spirit of ‘45 Day will take place this year on August 14, which is the anniversary of the day Japan surrendered, ending the Second World War.
The Granite Falls Historical Museum will be showing World War II videos throughout the day on Sunday, Aug. 14.
These well-done presentations were created by the History Channel, and there is no admission charge.
The museum hopes to be able to tailor the choices according to the desires of those in attendance, so walk in anytime during the day and offer some of your own recollections about those years of conflict and heroism.
The Museum is located at 109 E. Union St, Granite Falls,. Videos will begin about 10 a.m. and continue non-stop until 5 p.m.
