This photo shows the packed crowd for the latest community talk sponsored by Madison County Libraries and the Rotary Club of Madison County.
Willa Wyatt gave an update on the progress toward rehabilitation of the historic Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School.
Built in 1928, this school is the last one standing in Western North Carolina of the over 5000 Rosenwald schools built throughout the southeast to serve segregated African American students.
When completed, the building will serve as a community cultural center and an interpretative museum to enhance education and understanding of black history.
On Saturday, October 27th the club celebrated the dedication of the Bird Garden at the Marshall Public Library, recognizing the Rotary Club of Madison County as a partner in establishing the native plants on the library grounds. Also included were a tour of all the library's grounds followed by a morning of maintenance. Thanks to all that helped and especially to Ed McNally for organizing the event.
