Best of Times/Worst of Times – Marcia Morgan

April 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am


Marcia Morgan will speak about the Canteen in North Platte, Nebraska. It was the Best of Times because of what North Platte did to support the soldiers, but it was the Worst of Times because of World War II. Volunteers in North Platte, provided welcoming words, friendship, food, and treats at their depot when soldiers passed through.
Marcia was in the play Put the Coffee On. The play was sponsored by Henderson County’s Turning Pages Book Club in September, 2007, at the Raritan Opera House. Put the Coffee On is based on the book Once Upon a Town by Bob Greene a book based on the World War II Canteen in North Platte, Nebraska.
