WWII Dinner Lecture Elkhart Historical Society
Date & Time
5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The D-Day reenactment on Normandy Beach will be the topic of the dinner lecture offered by the Elkhart Historical Society on Friday September 27. Jim Grimaldi, who took part in the event as a paratrooper, will show actual video clips and photos of the event, as well as some of the equipment used to celebrate the 75th anniversary. A far cry from Grimaldi’s normal routine as a criminal lawyer in Lincoln, the event required hundreds of participants, aircraft and many months of preparation.  

The cost is $40 per person and reservations are required and can be made by calling 217 947 2238, before September 19th. The entree choices are pork medallions in mushroom/ wine sauce or crusted baked chicken breasts with alfredo sauce. The dinner will be at Horsefeathers Wild Hare Café in Elkhart, and the doors open at 5 pm dinner is served promptly at 5:30 pm.
