Celebrations for our 10th birthday in The Forum are officially underway. The Memorial Library has been decorated with birthday bunting. One of the strands celebrates the three years with the Reading Across the Pond book group, highlighting the books that they loved, hated, and debated. Other strands celebrate how the Memorial seeks to remember the past and inspire the future, combining archival photographs of World War II with children’s artwork commemorating World War II.
We have also set up a display with information about our ten years here in The Forum, tracing our history from the fire that burned down the last library to the new dedication ceremony to highlights of our activities over the last ten years to what the year ahead holds in store.
There will be lots of events happening throughout The Forum tomorrow (Saturday 5 November) as the birthday celebrations continue. More information is available here.
We’ll have more photographs when our camera battery has recharged.
