This department will research information about the history of the community, of the public institutions that serve and have served the community for in some case over a century as well as of the businesses and local non profits that have served the community for as long as it has existed. The information will hopefully inform as well as remind the community of all the institutions public and private that are incessantly striving to enhance the quality of life of those who find ourselves as residents, workers from other communities and visitors.
A “Did you Know?” has been developed that would list tidbits of information about the community; its institutions that we hope would be of great interest to many.
