Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience. Thirty-three veterans, half of whom reside at Heron Point, share their stories about the war and their service more than seventy years later. The project interviewees include local legends Dr. Davy McCall, Vince Raimond, Bobbie Anselmi, Joseph Doherty and Ras Kloman, among many others. The Historical Society of Kent County is co-sponsoring the exhibition and will have the exhibition on display at the Bordley Center in later months.
