Pearl Harbor, 75th Anniversary Niles Program

Today at 1pm the Village of Niles joined with local VFW Post 3579, the Morton Grove American Legion Post 134 to host the 100  multi-talented 4th and 5th graders of nearby Culver School as  they presented  a moving National Remembrance Day Program. Village Manager and Army veteran, Steven Vinezeano, served as Master of Ceremonies for the hour-long program of music, songs readings, ceremonies and recitations. Special guest, Navy Commander Master Chief Matthew Laing pictured below, delivered the keynote speech, as all were able to recall the  horror that burst upon the American forces out of a blue sky. The Marketing Department of the Niles Public Library crafted the banner proclaiming FDR's Day of Infamy Speech on December 8, 1941.
