Service in Fulton to honor Churchill
FULTON (AP) - The granddaughter and great-grandson of Winston Churchill will join Gov. Jay Nixon and others this weekend in Fulton to mark the 50th anniversary of Churchill's death.
The National Churchill Museum at Westminster College is hosting "America's Service of Remembrance" at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. The event is free and open to the public. Churchill delivered his famous "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College in March 1946.
Edwina Sandys, Churchill's granddaughter, used dismantled sections of the Berlin Wall to create a sculpture that sits on the campus.
The service is among several around the world in 2015 to commemorate the life of Churchill, prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. He died Jan. 24, 1965.
