Lititz Remembers

This year, the event is co-organized by Erin Myers, who often can often be seen portraying Rosie the Riveter at area events.

“Participants will represent several time periods ranging from Revolutionary War to Vietnam,” said Myers. Displays will consist of blankets, tents, vehicles, and items from their war time era periods. The event was created to educate others on soldiers lives, experiences, uniforms, and time periods and honor those who came before us and gave the ultimate sacrifice on Memorial Day.
