During the Wilson Administrations, artists were commissioned to design posters that encouraged Americans to enlist, conserve, work, purchase Liberty Bonds, care for the wounded, and remember who our enemies were.  Bob Frenz will bring some of his original WWI posters to share.  Please join us for an entertaining program followed by light refreshments.  A $5 per person at the door donation is suggested.
