Hymas shares history

The PBY Memorial Foundation will hold its monthly no-host luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the Chief Petty Officers’ Club on Ault Field Road in Oak Harbor.

The speaker will be Leo D. Hymas, who will relate his experience of the liberation of the prisoners from the Buchenwald concentration camp following the surrender of Germany in World War II.

Hymas was 19 years old at the time, but the experience haunted him forever, ultimately leading him to the Washington State Holocaust Resource Center, where he has worked for the center’s speakers’ bureau. He has traveled throughout the Northwest teaching history by sharing his past.

The PBYMF board of trustees will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8 at Flyers restaurant in Oak Harbor.  For information, call 360-240-9500.
