Kent to honor its World War I veterans
The 3 p.m. program at the Main Street library will feature guest speakers, a presentation on how and why the library is called Kent Memorial Library, including a look into Willard Paddock, the sculptor of the plaque over the fireplace in the reading room.
Sixty-seven names of those Kent residents who served in World War I are etched on the plaque.
Speakers will include Tim Henderson, a Humanities Department teacher at South Kent School; Andy Ocif, adjutant of the Kent American Legion Hall-Jennings Post No. 153; Charlotte Lindsey, secretary of the Veterans Memorial Committee at Kent Historical Society, and Donna Miller, library director.
