This Sunday Night after your dinner, come to the Print Shop from 7:00 – 8:30 P.M. to see the 100th Anniversary of WWI exhibit and enjoy a “Night at the Museum!”

Starting at 7 P.M., Paul Welke will display and talk about his rare collection of WWI Rifles on the Print Shop Porch.

Riffles to be displayed:
* MLE 1916 Rifle
* Enfield 303 Rifle w/ Bayonet
* Labelle Rifle
* Springfield 1903 Rifle
* Moissan Nagant M 91 1891 Rifle
* Gras Rifle
* Enfield 1917 Rifle
PLUS:
* 1915 Hotchkiss Machine Gun

Sunday Night is the only time you will have to opportunity to see the rifles at the museum! Other WWI artifacts will remain on display for one month.

Sincere appreciation and thanks to Paul Welke, Mark Englesman, Glen Felixson, Karl Heller for WWI artifact loans, and a donated artillery shell by Tom “Red Hughie” Boyle. Also the exhibit construction got some special attention from Chuck Schoenknect and Ward Paul! Thank You.
