We will be opening our new exhibit: “How Colchester Women Helped Win the War: 1939- ­1945” on Saturday, October 24 at 2pm.

With the world at war, all the rules changed. Most of the young men were in the military and women were expected to take on unusual roles. This exhibit it dedicated to the brave and resourceful women in Colchester who stepped up and contributed to the war effort in many ways during the years 1939 to ­1945.

Author Andria Hill-Lehr will give a presentation on the life of Wolfville native Mona Parsons. Mona was imprisoned by the Nazis during WWII for helping Allied airmen evade capture. Join us to hear her exciting story!
