The public is invited to the annual holiday open house at the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home on Sunday, Dec. 4. The Abilene Municipal Band will perform a free concert at 2 p.m. in the Visitors Center Auditorium, followed by refreshments.
Guests are invited to come early to shop and take advantage of a 20% discount on all in-store purchases! New and exciting inventory has been added offering a variety of holiday gift options.
“This open house has become a holiday tradition for families and we look forward to it each year,” said Tim Rives, Acting Director. “It also offers a ‘last chance’ to view the World War II Remembered temporary exhibits before they end on December 31.”
These exhibits end a three-year commemoration marking WWII 70th anniversaries. Exhibits and programs are only made possible through private donations to the Eisenhower Foundation. The World War II Remembered exhibits and programming has a number of extremely generous sponsors including the Emma Balsiger Foundation, Dane G. Hansen Foundation and the William T. Kemper Foundation. A complete list of exhibit donors can be found on www.eisenhower.archives.gov.
