Ferryville Tourism Council’s June Chautauqua Program will share story of WWII POW

The Ferryville Tourism Council has announced its June 12 Chautauqua Program will be John Armbruster speaking on the survival story of Gene Moran, who was a Crawford County, WI resident whose WWII experience led to his survival after falling four miles from his airplane without a parachute. He subsequently also survived being a Prisoner of War and being forced to walk on a 600-mile death march.

Attendees will be intrigued by the story as told by Armbruster in his best-selling book, Tailspin.  This book was written by John Armbruster after many evenings spent listening to Gene Moran carefully and cautiously tell his story to the author. Armbruster will have his book for sale at the conclusion of his presentation.

The public is invited to join the Ferryville Tourism Council Wednesday, June 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ferryville Village Hall on the south end of Ferryville along Hwy. 35, the Great River Road. Treats will be available. Those with any questions may call Bob Schmidt at 608-785-0555.
