On Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19, the Sturgeon House at 4302 Avonia Rd (Rte 98) will be visited by Able Company of the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment. They will have “missed their target” as many of the paratroopers did on D-Day, and will be landing on the side lawn of the Sturgeon House.
These World War II paratroop reenactors will have a display of equipment, including (weather permitting) the “Ramblin’ Wreck,” which is a WWII Jeep.
Hours on Saturday are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday from Noon to 4 p.m. They will have demonstrations and close-order drills on Saturday at 11 a.m., Noon, 1 and 3 p.m. and on Sunday 1, 2 and 3 p.m.
Also, the Sturgeon House will be open 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday and Noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. On display will be the summer exhibit, “1968,” about the Borough Centennial Celebration that summer.
The public is invited to attend, talk with the reenactors – they know their history! – and see the Centennial Exhibit. Admission to all is free.
Note: this is the last scheduled viewing of the exhibit. It will be intact until Labor Day and tours can be arranged to see it until then. To schedule a tour call 814 474-5855, leave your name and phone number, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
