If you’re looking to celebrate local veterans, both past and present, the Foothills Historical Museum in Buckley has you covered.
Through December 15, the museum has set up a special Veterans Day display to honor the local men and women who served in the armed forces.
The display was thought up by docent David Griffin, himself a British expatriate with the Royal Air Force who married a U.S. air force officer.
“The military is very close to my heart,” he said.
While the display will continue for another month, the museum is hosting a special Veterans Day showing on Nov. 11.
Griffin himself will be opening the museum at 10:30 a.m. and give a few words of welcome to visitors before a moment of silence at 11 a.m.
He’ll be available throughout the day as an information source of all things military in the museum.
“He really knows his stuff, I’ll tell you,” Jean Contreras, museum secretary, said of Griffin.
Refreshments and snacks will be available throughout the day, and the open house will end at 4 p.m.
