MEMORIAL DAY PROGRAM IN GREENVILLE

Reverend Tim Pate of the Greenville First United Methodist Church was the featured speaker at Monday's annual Memorial Day program at Montrose Cemetery.  Pate, who grew up in a military family and spent his youth in several countries, talked about his respect for the flag and what it represents.  He admitted that he felt humbled to be speaking in front of the men and women who had served this country and the principals of safety and freedom.  Pate also read the lyrics to the song "Taps" and asked that everyone take time to reflect on their meaning.

Among the groups participating were members of AMVETS Post 140, the Lincolnland Leathernecks Marine Corps League detachment, American Legion Post 282, VFW Post 1377 and its ladies auxiliary, Boy Scout troops 57 and 50, and the Greenville Municipal Band.

BCHS PLANNING SUMMER SEMINAR SERIES

The Bond County Historical Society is developing a summer seminar series that will offer something for everyone.  The first program is a Kids Introduction to Croquet on June 24 on the grounds of the Hoiles-Davis Museum.  Other seminars include Preserving and Restoring Photographs and Indian Beading. 

The Greenville Municipal Band will perform Thursday June 29 at the museum.  The Historical Society is again holding a homemade ice cream social in conjunction with the concert.  Proceeds from this year's event have been earmarked for the purchase of a copier for the museum.

July 15 is the tentative date for a trip to the Lewis and Clark Museum.  The Historical Society recently hosted five Greenville High School classes for a tour of the Hoiles-Davis Museum.  The tours were a great success.
