APHS Presents World War I Program

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the entrance of the United States into World War I, also called “The Great War”, and “The War to End All Wars”.

At 3 PM on Sunday, November 11, “Veterans/Armistice Day”, the Asbury Park Historical Society will present a program at the Asbury Park Public Library at 500 First Avenue to commemorate this anniversary.

After a discussion led by Historical Museum of Ocean Township Trustee Peggy Dellinger about the war and its impact on this area, the society will screen the 1930 Best Picture Academy Award winner “All Quiet on the Western Front”- based upon the great novel by Erich Maria Remarque.

The film is 2 hr. 13 minutes and stars a 21-year old Lew Ayres. Light refreshments will be available. Donations for the Asbury Park Historical Society will be appreciated.

Upcoming Events

The Asbury Park Historical Society’s annual 50/50 raffle will be drawn at the end of November and tickets to enter to contest are still available.

“Like they say, you have to be in it to win it,” APHS President Don Stine said.

The historical society has been spending a great deal of money recently renovating the Stephen Crane House, which it acquired a few years ago.

“We always appreciate any financial support we can get and entering the 50/50 raffle is a good and fun way to support us,” APHS President Don Stine said.

The raffle will be drawn at the society’s regular meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 7 pm. Tickets are $5 each or a book of five tickets for $20.

To enter, send your payment for the number of tickers you want to: APHS/ Stephen Crane House, 508 Fourth Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ 07712. You then will receive your entry stubs in the mail.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Stephen Crane House on Sundays between noon and 2 p.m.
