Executive Committee members gave updates on work that has been done as well as upcoming events and committee work. Attendees enjoyed refreshments, reconnecting, and meeting new members. In addition to seeing recently acquired artifacts,the group was entertained by lifelong resident Wayne Brooks, who told stories of growing up on Garner's Main Street.
