A Veterans Exhibit is on display at the Depot Community Room.
This display is to honor and remember Henderson’s connection to Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
There will be an expanded display on Admiral EH Himmel, a Henderson-native, who was Commander of the Pacific Fleet at the time of the attack that led the United States to enter WWII.
This year’s focus of the veteran’s exhibit is a visual display on the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.
It will also feature a Veteran’s Christmas tree that honors Henderson County military veterans.
Military veterans who were born or raised in Henderson County, and their friends or family members, are encouraged to bring a picture that will be scanned, printed, and mounted on a star, which be placed on the tree.
A digital image can be sent to email@example.com.
You should include the veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, service dates and any other interesting information, like service during war or conflicts.
The Depot Community Room is located at the Welcome Center on North Water Street in Henderson.
Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
