April 9th 2017 Meeting

The next meeting will be April 9th at 2:00 pm at the Senior Connections building. 

  • Glenn Wills - Forgotten Alabama

Our speaker will be Glenn Wills who will do a presentation on his "Forgotten Alabama" activities - Facebook group, and books.  A chance encounter resulted in him visiting all of Alabama's 67 counties, logging 30,000 miles, and taking 15000 photographs over the last 10 years.

Glenn was fulfilling a career in the broadcast news business and, as a satellite truck operator, did a lot of traveling across the state.  In his travels, he began to notice the things we had built and left behind.  He decided to map out the state and begin his journey in 2013.

We hope to see you there!
