commemorates the 75 anniversary of Pearl Harbor
The American Legion, Chamber of Commerce, Pine City Community Education, Pine City History Association, the Pine City Pioneer, and Public Library are cooperating to make this an interdisciplinary series of events in which people of all ages can participate.
As plans proceed, more information will be available from the Pine City Pioneer Newspaper, Community Education. Chamber of Commerce, and school website. All are invited to participate to learn more about this important time in our national, state, and local history.
The Pine City Public Library will feature Dr. Connie Harris as a speaker on the topic of Pearl Harbor. Dr. Harris completed her Ph.D. in American History from the University of Nebraska--Lincoln, with additional specialties in U.S. Military History and Modern German History. In addition to her work at the post-secondary level, Dr. Harris has developed two Advanced Placement courses for high school learners.
