Lititz paused and remembered

By on May 29, 2019

After the Lititz Memorial Day parade and ceremony in the Lititz Moravian cemetery, visitors were invited to “Lititz Remembers: A Memorial Day Timeline” which took place the Lititz Springs Park.

Once arriving onsite, guests had the opportunity to see artifacts as well as speak to reenactors who represented several wars in our country’s history.

“We always get lots of good questions,” said event organizer Erin Myers. When not teaching at Kissel Hill Elementary School, Myers, who was born and raised in Lititz, can often be seen portraying Rosie the Riveter in local parades and World War 2 themed events.

“All of our representatives here have huge collections,” she added. “They are really into talking about it and teaching people about all of the different wars.  It’s a good crew.”
