The reception was a tremendous success with a great response from the community.  The featured guests were our Oral History interview subjects and their families and friends. We are so grateful to them for sharing their stories with us. WPS would also like to thank Buzz Barry, who was unable to attend the reception. The Oral History Project Committee would also like to honor the memories of interview subjects Alexander Mikulski and Jennie Proto.
