Veterans Day program rescheduled at library

NEW BUFFALO — The World War II tale of Casey and the Flying Fortress, hosted by the Friends of New Buffalo Library, has been rescheduled to 6 p.m. Tuesday at New Buffalo Township Library, 36 N. Thompson St.

The program was postponed from Veterans Day due to bad weather.

Author Mark Farina will share the true story of Casey and the Flying Fortress about the pilot and crew of a B-17 bomber. The story covers the assembling and training of the crew to their struggle after becoming prisoners of war.
