Longtime Essex resident Mac MacDevitt designed a moving and educational exhibit that has traveled across the US . The acclaimed My Lai Memorial Exhibit is a project of Chicago Veterans for Peace (VFP), and honors the Vietnamese people who died as a result of our political and military actions in their country during their American War. The exhibit supports the mission of VFP, which is to seek justice for veterans and victims of war, expose the true costs of war and to work for peace. It has received enthusiastic reviews on a national tour that has included the cities of Santa Fe, San Diego, Fresno, San Francisco, Spokane and Iowa City. The exhibit will be open from noon until 7:30 on Friday and Saturday at the Whallonsburg Grange Arts and Community Center, with evening discussions both days.
