Have you been keeping up with the latest Elmwood history postings on the Elmwood Cultural Arts & Learning Center Facebook page?
Here’s what we’ve highlighted over the last month:
* Elmwood High School graduating classes of 1928 & 1929
* Elmwood-Murdock graduating classes of 2002 & 2003, including the Kindergarten classes from these years
* Peter Eveland – Civil War Veteran, homesteader. Last surviving member of the Elmwood G.A.R. Post 123. When he passed away in 1933, the post was disestablished. Some of his Homestead Records are also shown.
* An Elmwood Leader-Echo article from 1919 about the celebration of George E. Buell and George E. Vanderburg, early pioneers in our community, to commemorate having lived here 50 years. Interesting story of their journey here and their struggles as homesteaders.
* Fifteen-room hotel in Wabash for sale - $4,000
* William Buster, Civil War Veteran – stories of his time as a Confederate Soldier.

Village Board Meeting
Board meetings are open to the public and are held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month.
The meetings are held at the new Village Board office located at the Learning Center on the south side of town.
Official agendas are posted the day before at the Post Office, Gas Station, and Village Office. Prior to the posting of the agenda, meeting items can be added to the meeting. At the end of each meeting is a Public Comment Section. Attendees have three minutes to speak about anything at this time. Further discussion on the topic can then be added to the next board meeting.
The agenda is posted at the Elmwood C-Store, the post office, and the Village office.
Minutes can be viewed at the Village office or can be found online.
Wouldn't it be amazing if the board meetings were FULL every time? This is your opportunity to be involved, be "in the know" and learn how to influence how your community grows, how improvements can be made, and how you can participate in the steps needed to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
