Open house at Memorial Hall May 31
From press release
Veterans Memorial Hall, 211 N. Main St., invites the public to an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Memorial Day, Monday, May 31. Stop by and honor the veterans of Winnebago, view current displays and participate in family activities.
Throughout the morning vintage footage will be presented from a lost roll of film of The American Legion’s Walter Craig Post 60 activities during the early 1950s. Footage includes the 1952 Rockford Memorial Day Parade, Post 60 Legion picnic and many other activities the post was involved in. Also included is never-before-seen footage of the 1954 state encampment of the American Legion held in Chicago.
The hall would like to hear from anyone who might have had a family member who was a member of American Legion Post 60 in the 1950s. The goal is to identify as many people in the footage as possible.
