[ARCHIVED] Growing Up On Fort Monroe - Wednesday, December 19, noon-1 pm

Fort Monroe Porch

In 1955 a nine–year-old military dependent arrived at Fort Monroe with his family where he spent four years attending Fort Monroe Elementary School and learning about the fort and its history. Join us as Ron Ponzar relates his experience while living at the fort, including the International Review and the 350th Jamestown Festival Celebration at the fort.

Ron is a 1964 graduate of Hampton High School who went on to graduate from Campbell University in 1969. He served as an Environmental Health Specialist with the Virginia Department of Health from 1969 until his retirement in 2006. He’s been a beloved volunteer at the museum since 2009 as a docent and on special projects such as the Cheney photograph collection.

Bring a bag lunch--we'll have free dessert for you!
