The Warren County Historical Society is searching for individuals who would like to participate and are specifically interest in talking with individuals who have some knowledge in three specific areas:
· World War II Memories: Looking for individuals who have memories of The Home Front during WWII (1941-45). Do you remember Pearl Harbor, D-Day, the election of 1944, and FDR’s death? Also do you remember V-E Day and V-J Day, rationing, victory gardens, movies, songs, etc.?
· Fairs in Warren County: Interested in talking with individuals who remember the various County Fairs in Warrensburg – and perhaps other locations – through the 1960s.
· Churches: Looking for individuals who have an interest in the importance of churches in the development of a community. It would be especially interesting to learn why a particular congregation formed in a particular community, and what influence the people of the church had on the community, and the role of the church in creating a gathering place for people to meet for social events.
If you are interested in participating in these interviews, you can call the Warren County Historical Society before August 10th (743-0734) to make arrangements to be interviewed.
