Event: Apple Day

Date(s): 23 September, All Day

Location: Ft. Riley, KS

Type: Public Display

Need WWIIHC Volunteers: Yes

Website: https://www.facebook.com/events/1898670747069644

Description: This event is put on to provide the military community and the general public a glimpse at historical sights, sounds and smells of the frontier army and to learn about American military history.  This is a big event for the WWII Reenacting Corps and the WWII History Center in that we’ll be getting major exposure with Fort Riley.  I believe that Germans will be allowed this year, so long as the focus is on they being the opposition to the Big Red 1 on Normandy.  More details as the date drawn near...


Event: El Dorado Fall Festival

Date(s): ?? September

Location: Downtown El Dorado, KS

Type: Public Display

Need WWIIHC Volunteers: Yes

Website: https://www.facebook.com/eldoradofallfestival/

Description: Last year was a bust - the weather and the construction was bad.  We had very few visitors.  Here's hoping for a better time around this year.  The Museum will have an Open House and we’ll need all hands on deck.  Reenactors can set up display tables inside or outside the museum.  We’ll try to get a speaker and have other events going on in the Museum.  This is potentially a big even for the WWII History Center.  More details to come…
