“A Few Interested Residents” will be presented during a brown bag lunch program on Thursday, January 27 at the library. The program begins at noon and will be presented by Dr. Mike Jording. Jording, a physician by education and an amateur historian by interest had been looking for a book that catalogued the markers of Wyoming; unsuccessful in that search he created a comprehensive and definitive guide to Wyoming’s markers and monuments. The book “A Few Interested Residents” chronicles the history of those people and organizations responsible for historical marking efforts in Wyoming and will be available for purchase and signing. The program will focus on historical markers throughout our area with slides and discussion. Plan now to attend!
