Program Title: We Bought A WWII Bomber: The Willis Connection
On October 1, 1944 a B-17 Bomber crashed in Meadows of Dan on farmer “Bud” Goad’s pig lot. Recent findings revealed that bomber had a fascinating pre-history connecting it to a Michigan high school and the “Buy a Bomber” program. Come hear the story and discover what role residents of Willis, Virginia played in the aftermath of that crash.
Author and researcher, Sandra Warren, will be available to answer questions and to sign books.
