The Bradley County Historical and Genealogical Society will have its first meeting of 2019 on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 2:30 p.m., in the parlor of the historic Craigmiles Home – 833 North Ocoee Street, also known as the Johnston-Tucker Center, the History Branch of the Cleveland Public Library.
There will be a business session; all members are urged to be present and participate during the early part of this meeting. The society will select a nominating committee. The society elects officers during the April meeting and by our by-laws a nominating committee is selected during the January meeting. These offices include president, vice president, secretary/editor of Apricot Vine and a treasurer.
Dues are also payable during the January meeting. Following the business meeting the program will be presented by Bryan Reed.
Reed, current president of the Bradley County Historical and Genealogical Society and professor of history at Cleveland State, will give a presentation on the origin of the "Cleveland Freemen's School and early African Americans in Bradley County after the Civil War."
This presentation is given as we approach Black History Month in February.
