Brutus visits the Bus-eum

Brutus enjoyed the Bus-eum's visit earlier today. This year's display was entitled "Held in the Heartland" and featured information and artifacts related to World War II German POW's who were held in the midwestern U.S. Brutus didn't know much about World War II so he found the treatment of the enemy very interesting. Many of men, some of whom were housed just west of Owosso, worked on area farms or in local factories. Chicaro had also compiled a notebook of reminisces and newspaper articles related to Owosso's camp. Brutus learned alot about both the POWs and Owosso's history in a short period of time. For anyone who missed the exhibit, the accompaning booklet will be made available at the library in a few weeks as well as the notebook.
