[ARCHIVED] Town to hear from local residents involved in civil rights movement tomorrow at 7 PM

the Town Bd will hear from residents involved in the civil rights movement tomorrow at 7 PM--Bill Greenawalt, Johnny Jones, Barbara Perry and Patricia Weems. We will also honor Johnny Jones who was honored by the Community Colllege last week!

African American History is one of the equally essential threads of the cultural fabric that comprises all other cultures in our historical “quilt work” that tells the story of America. It is as much a part of the history of our country, our state, county and local municipalities as all other cultures that helped establish the cities, towns and villages in which we live. These threads, so to speak, have taken us on a journey through many noted and significant eras in our history.

Join us on Wednesday, February 24, 2020 – 7:00pm at Greenburgh Town Hall as we listen and learn from Greenburgh residents

• Bill Greenawalt, Esq.,

• Johnny Jones,

• Barbara Watson Perry and

• Patricia Weems

about the Civil Rights Era in our country and its impact on the Town of Greenburgh.

These individuals have a shared story to tell as their mothers, grandmothers as well as men and women of the community helped bring about changes to improve the quality of life for residents in our town.

Be in the audience and participate in this discussion!

After this portion of the meeting we will honor Johnny Jones who has made a major contribution to the town over the years. Johnny was honored by Westchester Community College last week for nearly 30 years of

developing a legendary following by telling the Westchester Community College athletic family about the accomplishments of others.

Johnny Jones was honored on February 18th by the college for his years of service – always highlighting the community about the accomplishments of others as the Vikings Public Address Announcer.

The Community College declared February 18th at Johnny Jones Appreciation Night as part of Westchester Community College basketball doubleheader with UIster Community College.

Whereas the place at the Westchester Community College scorer’s table will forever be known as the Johnny Jones Public Address Corner regardless of who the public address announcer is for any home event in Viking Gymnasium.
