LUNCH AND LECTURE at the Lummus Chapel … October 1, 2009

You are invited to the Lummus Chapel for a Lunch and Lecture on Thursday, October 1st, at 12:00 noon. The Historic Linwood Foundation, along with the Historic Columbus Foundation, will host this special “Lunch and Lecture”. Our guest speaker is Mary Jane Galer, co-author of “Historic Linwood Cemetery”.

Mary Jane has been volunteering for Historic Linwood since the foundation began in 1997. Before her work with the foundation, Mary Jane was a Professional Librarian for 47 years. She also pursued a political career for many years to include being the first woman in Columbus to be elected to the Georgia House of Representatives. Mary Jane was the ninth woman to enter the 180 member House of Representatives and served six terms.

Mrs. Galer’s most recent work with the Foundation has been researching the early stone carvers who came to Columbus. She has implemented a “Stone Carvers Tour”, which she will be speaking about at the upcoming lunch and lecture. The information she will share with us on October 1st will serve as a prelude to the annual Fall Ramble that we have entitled “A Monumental Task”.

We would like to thank Historic Columbus for hosting the luncheon at the Lummus Chapel. They will provide drinks and dessert. Please contact Historic Columbus to RSVP at 706-322-0756. Parking for the event will be at chapel.
