  • The Equinunk Historical Society's annual Memorial weekend program on Saturday, May 25, will honor a distinguished local veteran, John Thomas Smith, who was born January 27, 1924, died March 11, 1984.
    Johnny” served as a rifleman with the US Army during World War II.
    Between his enlistment on April 30, 1943 and his discharge on Oct. 15, 1945, he saw action in Normandy, the Rhineland, Northern France and Central Europe. After his service, he came home to work the family farm. Each Memorial weekend the Society chooses to honor a local veteran and that veteran's family.
    The program, which starts at noon, will be followed by the popular Ice Cream Social. Free, locally produced ice cream will be enjoyed by all.
    Memorial Day is a time to remember the valor and sacrifices of our armed forces and to enjoy time with family and friends. This special program will give your family a poignant reminder of the purpose of the holiday and, at the same time, provide enjoyment for the whole family.
