“Back Over There - Elkhart’s Sacrifice in WWI”, is the presentation planned for the Elkhart Historical Society’s Friday June 14th dinner lecture.

WWI historian Paul Osman of Williamsville, who last November gave a stirring talk at the dedication of the Veteran’s Park in Elkhart, is the much-anticipated speaker. Osman’s knowledge not only of the war, but also members of the Elkhart community who served in it, will take you back to an era that should not be forgotten. Osman has just returned from his 11th trip to the Western Front in France and Belgium. During this recent trip, he visited the battlefields and graves of several Elkhart WWI soldiers. Come celebrate the memory of those who unselfishly gave to the war effort.

The event will take place at Horsefeather’s Wild Hare Café, and the doors will open at 5 pm. Dinner will include a choice of coq au vin or pork tenderloin with wine and mushroom sauce each served with savory rice, vegetables, dessert and beverage.
