Memories of the Oregon Coast during World War II will fill the North Lincoln County Historical Museum this Saturday, Sept. 21, as two locals share tales of life on the home front.

Joann Kangiser Schneider, who was a teenager during World War II, and North Lincoln County Historical Museum President Mick McLean will present a slide show and encourage stories about “dim outs,” rationing cards, coast patrols and more

Schneider, a member of Taft High School’s class of ‘47, will share her personal experiences and those of her four brothers and future husband “Red” Schneider, who all joined the war effort. McLean will describe how two regions a sea apart prepared for invasion; Lincolnshire England after the fall of Dunkirk and Lincoln County, Oregon, after Pearl Harbor.

Saturday’s program will start at 2 pm at North Lincoln County Historical Museum, 4907 SW Hwy. 101, Lincoln City.
