Seneca Shipyard Days This Weekend

June 18-21, an annual celebration honoring the role Seneca played in the American World War II effort build LSTs, Landing Ship Tanks for the U.S. Navy.  Seneca was called the "Shipyard on the Prairie."

Of interest, yesterday, Wes Harrison, called Mr. Sound Effect,  performed and he himself served during World War II on the LST-227.

This is your usual town festival with food, rides, games, etc. as well as the history of the effort.

One of these years I plan to attend, but this came too soon after our trip to Missouri on Route 66 so didn't go.

Maybe Next Year.  --GreGen
