Marysville Public Library Announces Screening of HBO WW2 Mini-Series

Come to the Marysville Public Library and view the acclaimed HBO Mini-Series about WW2 directed by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.

The series will be shown in four parts:

July 14th at 7PM

July 21st at 7PM

August 4th at 7PM

August 18th at 7PM

We will be welcoming the Venture Crew 2037 WW2 Rein-actors in battle gear to help promote the WW2 series. As a living history group, Venture Crew 2037 participates in parades, living history demonstrations, and tactical “battles” representing the U.S. Army from WW2. The units portrayed include the 106th Calvary Group in the European Theater from 1944 to 1945; and the 37th “Buckeye” Division Troup in the South Pacific Theater from 1942-1945. The “Buckeye” Division was commanded by Marysville’s very own General Robert S. Beightler. While a part of the Boy Scouts of America, Venture Crews are open to both young men and women ages 14-21. Crew 2037 has both young men and women participating in living history events. To obtain more information about the Venture Crew 2037 program, contact Bruce “Bo” Johnstone at 642-1342.

Bo will be available to chat before and after the WW2 series being shown at the library.
