To Mark the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II A dramatic reading of Apron Strings will be performed as part of the annual Reunion of the Rohna Survivors Association. Apron Strings chronicles the love between Lt. William Brown, a survivor, and his devoted wife, Mae, who writes to her Bill and her sister-in-law, Eva Lee. The HMT Rohna is the worst at sea disaster in US history. Bill Brown survived the sinking but more than 1,000 American servicemen did not. The disaster was classified by the American and British governments for 50 years.
