Orange County Regional History Center Offers Free Admission for Military Summer 2011

As tomorrow is Memorial Day, I thought I’d post about a local deal for active military.

From Memorial Day (May 30) to Labor Day (September 5), the Orange County Regional History Center will offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families.

This offer is available to active duty military and their immediate family members (military I.D. holder and five immediate family members), including active duty Reserve and active duty National Guard.

This offer is part of Blue Star Museums, a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and more than 1,300 museums across America.

For more information, contact the OCRHC at 407-836-8500 or toll-free at 800-965-2030. It is located downtown at 65 E. Central Blvd.

Meet Holocust Survivor Fanny Aizenberg at the Orange County Regional History Center on May 26

On May 26, the Orange County Regional History Center in downtown Orlando will host a special event with Holocust survivor Fanny Aizenberg.

Born in Poland, Aizenberg was part of the Belgian Resistance movement during WWII, hiding refugees in her attic, and was eventually deported to the concentration camp at Auschwitz.

During the event, she will talk about the horrors she faced and how the hope of being reunited with her daughter helped her to survive this period of her life.

Admission to hear Aizenberg speak is $10 for OCRHC members and $20 for non-members. Start time is 6:30pm.

The Orange County Regional History Center is located at 65 E. Central Blvd and you can reach them by phone for more information at 407-836-7010.
