Museum meeting to have patriotic theme

September 09, 2002

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - This month's meeting of the Allison-Antrim Museum will have a patriotic theme.

The meeting will be Thursday in the downstairs social room of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, 130 N. Washington St., Greencastle, at 7 p.m.

The meeting will open with Barry and Mandy Stottlemyer, Greencastle singing "God Bless the U.S.A." Following that, Ben Thomas, of Greencastle, will read the Four Freedoms portion of Franklin D. Roosevelt's State of the Union address to Congress in January 1941. The Four Freedoms speech inspired Norman Rockwell to paint his famous Four Freedoms paintings that toured the nation raising money for war bonds during World War II.

The guest speaker for the evening will be Allen Becker, of Greencastle, who works for the Fairfax County, Va., Fire Department. His company was one of the first deployed to the Pentagon on Sept. 11. He was in rush hour traffic, just blocks away, when he saw the plane hit the Pentagon.
