The display case in the VFW room, adjacent to the KP Historical Society Museum at the KP Civic Center, holds a new exhibit of military uniforms, photos, stories and memorabilia of some KP veterans.
According to organizers, this is planned to be a rotating exhibit, featuring other veterans, too.
A model of the Carl Lorenz steamship “Sophia,” handcrafted by Kelson Mills of Vaughn, is on display in the museum. The first boat built at Lorenz’s Lakebay home, named for his mother, was one of the “Mosquito Fleet” boats that plied Puget Sound waters prior to the construction of bridges and improved roads.
KPHS officers elected in March are Judy Mills, president; Bob Whitman, vice-president; Darcie Long, secretary and Cathy Williams, treasurer.
Planned summer events include evening presentations at Penrose Park, beginning June 21; historic three-hour cruises around McNeil Island on “My Girl” on July 26 and 27; and a presentation by author Justin Wadland on his new book, “Trying Home,” in August.
The museum is open, free admittance, Tuesdays and Saturdays, 1-4 p.m., or by appointment. For information, call 888-3246.
