The University of Maine will host a 1940s theme tribute to World War II veterans on Tuesday, May 30.

Members of the public are invited to attend a free potluck lunch and story-sharing event from noon to 3 p.m. in the atrium of the D.P. Corbett Business Building.

Guests are asked to bring a dish, preferably one that was popular in the 1940s, and dress according to the time period. Guests also are encouraged to share WWII tales, pictures or memorabilia.

The lunch will take place from noon to 1 p.m., followed by time to meet others and swap stories.

The event is hosted by the UMaine Office of Veterans Education and Transition Services (VETS) and the Maine Business School.
