Wright Museum to Honor Veterans on Veteran’s Day

Concluding its 2019 season on October 31, Wright Museum will reopen for Veteran’s Day on Monday, November 11 during which it will also host its annual ceremony to honor veterans at 11 am.

“It is important we honor the contributions and sacrifices made by all veterans,” said Wright Museum Executive Director Mike Culver, who noted the ceremony is organized by Wolfeboro’s American Legion Post 18. “Nearly one-third of our visitors each year are veterans from various wars, so this day, in particular, at The Wright is very important to them and all visitors.”

At the ceremony, which will take place in the Military Gallery, the featured speaker will be John Frank, previously serving Marine and current Wright Museum Board member. In addition, there will be a color guard, benediction and bagpipe music.

“It’s a touching, moving ceremony,” added Culver.

On Monday, November 11, Wright Museum will be open from 10am to 4pm with regular admission prices.

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
