Member Jacquie Beveridge suggests ‘America’s Ancestry Craze’, a fascinating essay on America’s renewed interest in genealogy. We are unable to reproduce the article here, however it can be found as the cover story in the June issue of Harper’s Magazine. Alternatively, hear an audio interview of author Maud Newton discussing the article.
A plaque in City Hall was recently installed, recognizing our Recycle project efforts. The plaque reads:

“In appreciation and recognition of the
Top Community Achiever
in significant efforts towards a more environmentally friendly community.
The City Council hereby extends the gratitude of the Citizens of the City of Florence.”
