7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
at the Matawan Community Center.

 The program will dispel some of the many myths about World War I. Although it only lasted four years, WWI has been called the first real “war of terror” of the modern age. Its use of modern technology including submarines, bombers, tanks, poison gas and flame throwers changed the world forever.

Hosted by the American Legion Matawan Post 176 and the Matawan Historical Society. Free admission, but donations gratefully accepted.  Refreshments will be provided by the Women’s Club of Matawan.

The Matawan Community Center is located at 201 Broad Street, Matawan NJ.

NOTE: As part of the 100th anniversary events, a special memorial service to honor all veterans will be held on November 11th at 11 AM at Rose Hill Cemetery, Ravine Drive Matawan.
