Evansville Wartime Museum’s 5th Anniversary Celebration Includes Historic Plane Ride Fundraiser
One of the most patriotic things you can do this Memorial Day Weekend is to join the Evansville Wartime Museum's 5th Anniversary Celebration. This Saturday, May 28, 2022, you have the opportunity to ride in a few different and very unique airplanes. Local pilots will be volunteering their time and planes to raise money for the Evansville Wartime Museum.
The celebration will include live music, food & drinks, plus very special historic displays.
Forest Gottman is the Executive Director of the Evansville Wartime Museum

Evansville's War History
We had the opportunity to tour the Evansville Wartime Museum last year (See pics below) And it really tells the story of how Evansville played a huge part in the war. I learned a lot, and there is a lot of memorabilia on display too.
