Tyrone-Waring Canteen

The Tyrone-Waring Canteen was a home away from home for servicemen during World War II. The Canteen published a newsletter with information about the servicemen and women that visited and the volunteers and businesses that supported the effort. Sales of the newsletter supported the Canteen's services. It's a great source of information about local World War II veterans and a good look at the homefront. It also details the efforts of Fred Waring and his family during the war years as they raised funds and awareness for the canteen. You can read these newsletters by clicking on the links below.
