Greenwood plans to mark 200 years
In 2016 Greenwood will celebrate its 200th anniversary, and selectmen are looking for people who want to help plan the party.
“I think we should get started,” said selectboard Chairman Fred Henderson at last week’s board meeting. “Anybody who’s interested should be involved.”
They will establish a committee to plan the event. But they also did a bit of brainstorming themselves, along with some reminiscing about the last celebration - the 175th anniversary.
Then, they said, there was a parade with floats representing the old schools throughout Greenwood, as well as areas of town like the Irish Neighborhood and Richardson Hollow.
Businesses took part as well.
The selectmen said they hope there will be similar involvement this time. Anyone interested in helping out is asked to contact the Town Office at 875-2773.
