To commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I, the Lyme Public Hall Association will open a new exhibit in July called “Lyme in the Great War,” which tells the stories of the 28 Lyme residents who served during WWI.

 The exhibit – a culmination of two years’ worth of research – features letters, photos and documents pulled from the Lyme Local History Archives, the Connecticut State Library’s WWI collection and local families. 

The exhibit will be on view Wednesday, July 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturday, July 7, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission is free.
