The ceremony previously scheduled for 10 a.m. at the MAC's outdoor Veterans Memorial, 544 N. Sequim Ave., has been canceled and the Vietnam veterans history exhibit opening reception time moved up in its place.
All are encouraged to attend the free opening reception to open the new Vietnam veterans history exhibit, which includes military items and photographs loaned by local Vietnam veterans, a Quilt of Valor by the Friendship Quilters, and a new Olympic Peninsula Doll Club display of military dolls.
