Don't miss the final reenactment of WWI soldier, Carl Vail - August 5

On August 5, there will be a reenactment of a Soldier's Story during WWI from the diaries of Carl Vail.

Our Bainbridge intern, Alex Bradley, will be acting as Carl Vail, the soldier.

"The Homefront," an exhibit commemorating 100 years since the U.S. entered WWI, focuses on the Town of Southold in the years 1917 -1918 and the young men & women who went to war in France.

The Exhibit will be open Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays,

1 - 4pm through October 8.

If you would like to take part in the WWI Oral History project please call Director Karen Lund Rooney at the office 631.765.5500 ext 3.
