Family Day: Home Front on the Front Lawn at Pequot Library
720 Pequot Avenue, Southport, CT 06890 USA
Bring the family to Pequot Library’s Great Lawn on Sunday, October 15 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. to discover what life was like on the home front during WWI with hands-on activities for all ages. Families can "support the war effort" by collecting war bond stamps on a scavenger hunt, view a 1916 Model T Ford ambulance and a 1915 Dodge Brothers Touring Car, make a toy bi-plane, meet costumed WWI soldiers and nurses, play period lawn games, take a tour of Pequot’s Special Collections exhibition, “The Great War and the United States Home Front”, and enjoy cider, coffee and donuts. Free and open to the public. Weather permitting.
