Sharing Your Stories: Veterans Remembering Together

Grove City Library invites veterans and family members of veterans to share their stories at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16.

Veterans have touched the lives of everyone in both tenuous and profound ways. It is important to hear and commemorate their stories. Do you have a military history service story to share?

Whether you are a veteran or a family member of a veteran, we would like to hear your story. Please join MSgt. Stephen Walter USMCR (Ret.) and fellow veterans for the unique opportunity to share and hear personal experiences.
