Please join us for the next meeting of the Towns County Historical Society on Monday, August 12 at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Towns County Civic Center due to ongoing work at our regular meeting room. Note that our meeting time has changed to 6:00 p.m. beginning in August.
The program will be presented by Mary Ann McCall Miller who will take us on a personal tour of old Hiawassee through her collection of pictures of buildings and businesses of the past.
Part II of the program will be presented by Jerry Taylor who will share the original plan for the town of Hiawassee and explain how that plan developed in certain areas and was circumvented in others. The program will conclude with a brief overview of the strategic plan developed for modern Hiawassee.
CELEBRATE AND HONOR OUR VETERANS
Towns County Historical Society does something different from regular programs each year in July by having a special program devoted to our local veterans. This year it will be held at the Foster Park Recreation & Convention Center at 150 Foster Park Road, Young Harris from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
Come join this patriotic program and hear stories by our honored and very special veterans. Commissioner Cliff Bradshaw, Iwo Jima Veteran Bud Johnson, and students Gabriel Moody and Summer Rahn will be on the program. A free sack lunch will be provided for all the veterans, so invite any you know.
