Moving Wall exhibit looking for volunteers, memorabilia

Jun 29, 2017

Wareham — The Rochester Historical Society, in conjunction with the Friends of the Wareham Veterans council, is looking for Vietnam veterans from Marion and Rochester who may be willing to loan Vietnam War memorabilia for an exhibit which will be located at the Moving Wall site in Wareham from August 17 to August 21.

The historical societies are currently compiling a list of items that Marion and Rochester veterans may be willing to lend for a "Memorabilia Tent." The examples of memorabilia include limited to books, flags, medals, uniforms, documents, letters, maps or ribbons, etc.

The societies are also looking for any veterans and non-veterans alike to volunteer to help create the display table and to man the tables a couple of hours at a time during the event.

There will be 24-hour security at the Moving Wall for the entire duration of the event. Each town that abuts Wareham was invited to participate in the memorabilia exhibit.

If veterans have items to loan, can help create the display or can man the tables and answer questions, the Rochester Historical Society would appreciate it.

Please contact Angela M. Dunham, exhibit Coordinator for the Wareham Vietnam Moving Wall Project and President of the Wareham Historical society at 508-295- 8578.
