The Door County Historical Museum (DCHM) will celebrate Leonard and Ruth Schmelzer Potier on July 6. Leonard was in the Navy, stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941; Ruth was the first from Door County to volunteer for the WAVES.
The Potier family recently donated its military memorabilia to the museum, and many of these items will go on display for the first time. Ruth and her family will also be on hand to talk about the collection, 11 am – 1 pm.
The Door County Historical Museum, on the corner of 4th Avenue and Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily, 10 am – 4:30 pm.
