Library Exhibit – November 2017: To honor those who serve

Jamestown men and women have served gallantly in every American war since the founding of the colony.  On Veterans Day, we honor them all.

The exhibit shows Jamestown memorabilia from wars fought from the American Revolution to the Korean conflict and is in conjunction with the “Journeys onward: A Veteran’s Art Exhibit” mounted by the Jamestown Philomenian Library and the Conanicut Island Art Association.
