Historical groups partner to honor veterans

January 1st, 2018 6:00 am

Members of the Shawnee Cemetery Preservation Association and Plymouth Historical Society recently paid tribute to the veterans who are laid to rest at the cemetery. On Feb. 25, the organizations will hold a new partnership event, “Dinner with the Shawnee Time Travelers,” at the Shawnee Room at Happy Pizza in Plymouth. Local members will present citizens of the past, much like the “Annual Walk for the Unknown and Forgotten,” except that attendees may watch and enjoy from the comfort of their chairs while feasting on a spaghetti buffet. The event will begin at 1 p.m. and will include live music and raffles. This premier event will benefit both organizations. Buffet tickets are $15. For tickets or more information, contact Tom Jesso at 570-333-4028. Shown left to right: Tom Jesso, Ruth Jesso, Lorraine Smith, Mary Kondrad and Steve Kondrad.
