“Lest We Forget”, a mobile museum about the first World War (1914-1918), will be stopping at the high school in Winchester this weekend as part of a centennial commemoration of the war’s armistice. The public is invited to tour the museum on Saturday, September 8th, after area schools visit it on Friday. The museum consists of over 200 artifacts and 12 sections depicting life during the war and its effects on cultures and nations. The purpose of the museum is to bring the historical items and exhibits to those people who still have a personal connection to the conflict, while educating new generations of students and the public about the era. The artifacts and historical exhibits have been assembled by Keith Colley, a 1981 graduate of Jefferson County North. Colley was inspired to create the museum by his visit to the National WW1 Museum in Kansas City.
