The Fentress County Historical Society has announced that it will present a Summer Speakers Series, this year, in addition to the Visiting Author Series that has become popular here over the last two years.
The first program to be offered will take place Thursday, May 11th and will feature Jamestown City Mayor Darlene Monday Davis. The event will be held in the large courtroom of the Fentress County Courthouse, starting at 5pm and is expected to last about 1 ½ to 2 hours.
Designed to provide a platform for citizens to hear about and respond to matters pertaining to city, county and state government, the Historical Society anticipates that the series will present, in addition to Mayor Davis, officials from Fentress County Government and the State Legislature.
Mayor Davis will talk about the daily operation of the City of Jamestown, current historic preservation projects and those that might be planned for the future. She will also discuss her goals and vision for the future of the city and entertain questions from the audience.
All citizens of Jamestown are invited to attend and refreshments will be served.
