The Greater Ridgewood Historical Society and the Allied Veterans Memorial Committee of Ridgewood and Glendale are hosting a Korean War Cease-Fire commemoration on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The event, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the cease-fire agreement that ended fighting during the Korean War, will be held at the Vande Ende Onderdonk House at 18-20 Flushing Ave. in Ridgewood.

Former state Sen. and Korea War veteran Serphin Maltese will be the keynote speaker and the Mayor’s Office of Veteran Affairs Commissioner Terrance Holliday will also be in attendance.

The society is planning a Korean War exhibit, entertainment and refreshments following the short program and the Onderdonk House museum and the picnic ground will remain open for the rest of the day.

Tours of the Onderdonk House will also be available.

To RSVP, contact Paul Schottenhamel by emailing him at LTCPJS@msn.com with the number of members who plan to attend or visit onderdonkhouse.org.

Welcome to the discussion.
