During the process of researching the community ancestors you’ve been reading about these last few months, I found an abundance of historical information on many amazing events that took place in our community. These social, political, religious and educational events and activities were such an important part of the culture of our community and its history. I am truly fascinated by what I am learning and I believe you will be too.
I will be writing about these events as I continue to share biographical information about the many people who enriched our community through their business acumen, political action, social and civic interest, ingenuity, creativity, an overarching desire to advance as individuals and an even greater desire to uplift our community.
