“We will have warm reinforcements of complimentary blankets (while supplies last) + hot beverages available for purchase from CoffeeCakeKC at Sunday morning’s outdoor Armistice 100 Ceremony.

“Great piece in PARADE Magazine on the history of #Armistice100 and the commemorative activities at the Museum and Memorial tomorrow: Tolling Bells and Massive Light Display of Poppies Commemorate Centennial of Armistice Ending World War I.”
Complimentary Royal British Legion poppies will be shared with guests who attend the U.S. Armistice 100 Ceremony at the Museum and Memorial this Sunday. Poppies are traditionally worn on the left lapel.”
“For the grace of God has appeared,
bringing salvation for all people, (Titus 2:11)”
“Sisterly love time! If FiM is to end after next season I hope we get more of these two’s background. It’s sad how little we’ve gotten to see them interact over so many many episodes.”
‘From the Collection: an early illustration of the Kaiser by artist Louis Raemaekers titled, “I Dreamt That It All Was Not True,” with the depiction of terrible tragedy written in his face.
In the final days leading up to the signing of the Armistice, Germans are escorted through a devastated French countryside to a railway car in the Compiegne Forest, where Marshall Foch presents the Allied armistice terms. Germany must answer within 72 hours.
100 years ago today, Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated his throne ahead of the Armistice and fled to Holland with his entourage. In Germany, Philip Scheidemann, a Socialist leader, then proclaimed a democratic Republic and became its first Chancellor.’
“These are the warm-up Salute to Service jackets that The Kansas City Chiefs will be wearing at tomorrow’s game in honor of #Armistice100 featuring a special commemorative patch in partnership with the Museum and Memorial. Look out for these as you watch the game tomorrow!
