Lliving History - Military artifacts display June 7
East Providence resident Russ Erwin, an avid collector of World War II military items, will display hundreds of artifacts (uniforms, equipment, vehicles, personal items of soldiers) on the Weaver Library Lawn, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, RI on Saturday, June 7, 2008 from 10AM to 3PM. This year’s exhibit includes collections from the Korean, Vietnam, and Desert Storm wars. Erwin and other collectors and reenactors will answer questions and share their experiences collecting military memorabilia, marching in parades, and, especially, talking to students and veterans. This program is free and open to all and will move to the program room in the event of rain.
