Not Bragging... Just an Introduction to my Community

Our local Public Television network produced a (rather condensed) history of our town here. It's not inaccurate, but it had to fit within a limited timeframe, so it's lacking in detail... and there are a lot of details. Still, it's worth watching, and I learned a few things,too.

It's not quite an hour long. A bit of investment in time, but given what this little community (we're somewhat smaller now…
