Our next regular meeting will be Monday, February 18, 2013 at 7 PM at the Farmer's Bank Community Room when former mayor Ken Edwards will entertain and educate us with a presentation on Judge Alfred Burton Greenwood. Our city is his namesake and we are excited to make his acquaintance.
Judge Greenwood was an accomplished and highly-esteemed man of his day, appointed Commissioner of Indian Affairs during the Trail of Tears, and nominated as Secretary of the Interior, among his many accomplishments.
