D-Day: The 80th Anniversary

Thursday, June 6 at 6:30 PM in The Ballroom: Community Education invites all to the observance of the day that marked the turning point of the war in Europe. David Fruchi, resident and retired history teacher will present this special program. He will tell of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall which he hoped would stop our forces on the beaches, of Operation Fortitude which the Allies used to trick Hitler into believing the invasion would take place at Calais and of the importance of the weather which almost postponed the invasion. The invasion touched his family in a very personal way and his original presentation was researched and presented to honor his uncle Mike and the more than 159,000 men who stormed those beaches that day. To quote David, ‘It is an honor to be able to share this story.’

Our honored guests will be our Four Seasons veterans. Join us in celebrating them and learning more of this pivotal day in history.

Light refreshments will be served. Please signup in The Orange Book.  Patricia Allen 4/29/24 Post jgr
