Ever hear of the Bombing of Reading during World War II?
It happened -- and the incident was discussed on KVOE's Morning Show on Thursday. North Lyon County Museum spokesperson Sharon Spade started the discussion by mentioning a replica of a practice bomb made from remnants of unexploded bombs at a practice site between Reading and Miller.
Spade says things didn't go as planned Jan. 2, 1943.
The end result? Thirteen craters in a park at the edge of town as well as an unoccupied field.
Spade's appearance on KVOE helped to highlight the North Lyon County Historical Society's annual meeting coming at 7 pm Monday in the Admire Community Building. Residents are encouraged to attend. For more information, call Spade at 340-0877 or go online to www.nlcmuseum.org.
