The public is invited to attend a free program about a new project, OverThere: Missouri and the Great War, from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Hannibal Free Public Library, 200 South 5th Street. A light buffet will be served at 5:30 p.m. This is an after-hours program, so participants must arrive by 6 p.m.
Over There: Missouri and the Great War is a federally funded, statewide project that seeks to digitize photos, letters and memorabilia that show the effect World War I had on Missouri and the impact of Missourians’ contribution to the war effort.
Adults are invited to come and learn how they can participate in the project. More details about the project may be found at ww.missourioverthere.org.
