The Max G. Creech Selma Historical Museum will be hosting a Veterans Day program on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 2pm. The event is entitled, “1941: A Year That Changed The World.”

The discussion will focus on the historical background associated with 1941 and the United States entry into World War II after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

This year, 2021, marks 80 years since the Pearl Harbor attack. The museum’s Veterans Day program is designed to “honor the lives lost and look at the significance of the day from 80 years out.”

The event will be held in the museum, located at 104 W Anderson Street, Selma, North Carolina.

All are welcome to attend this free program. Attendees are invited to share their family stories about WW II.

Said Eric Jackson, program coordinator: “This event leads off our 10th Anniversary Celebration.  Over the next year the museum will be hosting events and historical programs to celebrate our 10 years of helping to tell the story of Selma and its residents.”

For more information, contact Eric Jackson at 919.333.4899 or via email.
