Memorial Day VFW History Pop-Up

May 20, 2024

Come to the Marion Music Hall on May 27, 2024 from 9 am until noon for the pop-up exhibit of photos, objects and stories of the Benjamin D. Cushing Veterans of Foreign War Post 2425. Disbanded in 2017, the VFW Building was given to the Town and continues as the Cushing Community Center.

“We have a wonderful collection of VFW history and memorabilia,” said Leslie Thayer Piper, archivist of the Sippican Historical Society (SHS). “Normally, you would visit the SHS gallery to view these items, but we thought the Memorial Day Parade is a way to bring an exhibit to the community.”

Founded in 1932, the Benjamin Cushing Post 2425 provided camaraderie and community service for the men and women who served in the Armed Forces.
