"Cooney Goes Over There!"


Oconomowoc resident, veteran and author Dale Reich

A special Veterans Day event featuring the world premiere production, "Cooney Goes Over There! The Story of Oconomowoc during World War I " will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, at First Congregational UCC of Oconomowoc, at 815 S. Concord Rd. Written by Vietnam War veteran and lifelong Oconomowoc resident, Dale Reich, the play honors local veterans and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI on Nov. 11, 1918. This free event will host a freewill benefit for veterans and families served through the Fisher House Foundation in Milwaukee. Reich and producer Rebecca Seymour offered a moving tribute to all veterans Monday, described the play's creation, content based on news articles and letters,  and selection of characters. He described Oconomowoc's participating in "meatless Mondays" and "wheatless Wednesdays," saving pennies for war bonds, moving food to the starving in Europe and how "war touched Oconomowoc deeply."

Vietnam veteran Reich also described his returning home to the U.S. after his tour, stating, "this is a great country, with safety, security and freedom. I was, and still am, proud to have served America."

   2.  There will student scholarship presentation for Shannon Russell
   3.  Last by not least....Ramon will be doing his "official" classification.  Mike Welsh will be the reader for his new book.  This is a NOT TO MISS day!
 
Have an awesome week!
