75th anniversary celebration of the 78th reactivation and Camp Butner opening

Hello everyone,

The town of Butner and the Camp Butner Society are deep in the planning stages of the 75th anniversary celebration of Camp Butner opening and the reactivation of the 78th during WWII. The festivities will be the evening of September 22nd and the day of the 23rd. Friday will be a dinner at the camp's field house built in 1942 along with USO-like entertainment (a Bob Hope impersonator is scheduled to be there). On Saturday the day will start with a parade with vintage military vehicles followed by a ceremony (we will be having a special military VIP in attendance), there will be WWII living history encampments and even a bus tour and history talk of former Camp Butner sites.

We would love everyone that can to attend! For more information, visit the town of Butner website at:

Thanks so much. We hope to see you there!

Your location (optional): Butner, NC
