The Northern York County Historical and Preservation Society is planning a second annual event to honor the local heroes of World War II.

The World War II tribute will be held Saturday at Dill's Tavern, 227 N. Baltimore St., Dillsburg, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a number of displays, including re-enactors and living historians, WWII-era vehicles, military art prints and a Wall of Honor that features local veterans' WWII histories and photos.

There is no admission charge to the exhibition.

Re-enactors from the 45th Infantry Division will create a unit camp on the tavern grounds with period tents, armament and equipment displays, and demonstrations of drill and tactical movement. Military and period vehicles will be on display.

The wall has added more local bios during the past year and is still accepting historical records of Dillsburg-area veterans. In addition, another document has been recovered that lists the names of all Wellsville-area WWII participants. Contact Doug Riley at for more information.

A USO-style dance will follow that evening, beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is $15 per person with proceeds going to the society. WWII veterans will be admitted at no charge. Tickets will be on sale at the Book House at the Village Shops (11 N. Route 15, No. 5) and the Blossom Shop (43 S. Baltimore St.).

For more information, call 717-432-2720, 717-432-4021 or Clair Zeiders at 717-571-0141.
