May 18: 11am-3pm
The Friends of the World War II Lookout Tower host the annual salute to Cape May’s Greatest Generation. Join local veterans and their families at the Tower on Sunset Boulevard in Lower Township (ceremonies will be held in the parking lot across the street from the Tower).
This year, special guest, Bob Mullock, owner of the historic Chalfonte Hotel, will read a recently
discovered letter from Cape May’s Civil War hero Colonel Henry Sawyer, written to his son while Sawyer
was a prisoner in Libby Prison. This will be the inaugural public reading of this important piece of local and
national history. The letter will thereafter go on display as part of the permanent Civil War exhibit inside the
Chalfonte Hotel, 301 Howard St.
All activities are free and open to the public. For more information, call Dr. Robert Heinly, 609-884-5404, ext. 134
