miracle of america‘You won’t find the date on many calendars anymore, and probably few school history classes will mention it, but a few old soldiers and the then family waiting at home are thankful of the date of 8 May 1945. I speak of “V.E. Day” or Victory in Europe over a crazed madman and his Nazi empire. The Miracle of America Museum, Polson, will be presenting it’s 2nd Thursday evening monthly free program at 6:30 pm in the public meeting room. Ironically, this evening falls on the 69th anniversary of the end of World War 11 in the European theatre. Veteran Flick Riebe will share some memorable stories and show the piece of shrapnel from a German “88″ that he was closely connected with. Displays from the museum collection including an “88″ round, newspaper headlines, etc. will also be viewed and explained. Anyone, with personal memories and feelings of that event or victory celebrations, that may wish to share are welcome to call Gil at 406-270-7895.’
