Historic Summerseat


Summerseat will celebrate the men and women

of WWI and WWII from Morrisville

Do you have a relative who served in the military during WWI or WWII?

Do you have  a relative who worked in the war industries, helped build munitions, gathered scrap metal, were Blackout Wardens, or sent letters to soldiers and sailors they didn’t know in order to keep military spirits up?

Did your grandmother or mother make special “Patriotic Foods” like meatless meatloaf, sugarless cake? Do you have those recipes? We’d love a copy.

Do you have a picture of these patriots? 

Could you give Summerseat a copy, or send a digital copy along with their story in a paragraph or so about how and where they served?

Summerseat would love to have these histories to be kept in our permanent collection. After all, this is an important part of Morrisville’s history.

Do you have a friend or relative who served in later military events? Please send their picture and memories, too, and we will be able to have a day for them in the future.

Mail your pictures and memories to:
