The canteen will begin with a Presentation of the Colors by the American Legion’s Color Guard, followed by military service songs to honor each branch of the armed forces. Venessa Stacy will direct the reading of letters sent home by Garrett County soldiers serving in World War I. Jill Craig, Digitization Librarian at Western Maryland Regional Library and Coordinator of the Western Maryland Historical Library (WHILBR), will give a brief overview of WHILBR’s digital collections and how to access them. The event will conclude with period songs played by Judy Bertsch.
