Letters from the Front with WWII Veteran Lionel “Hap” Metivier

Sunday, November 10th 1:00PM

Hap, circa 1945

Join us for this first-hand account of Hap’s experiences during WWII.  Hap was 18 years old when he was sent overseas and his parents saved every letter he sent home. He has chosen a number of these to share with us.  Victor High School student Ryan Westbrook will read some of these letters, and Hap will expound on each one.  Hap’s experiences included being at the Battle of the Bulge as well as liberating “work camps” in Europe after the war had ended.  This is a unique opportunity to learn from a primary source what it was like to be in Europe during this time.
