  • Notes from the Greenfield Historical Society
       Since 1918, November starts on a bittersweet note. On the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour the armistice began that signaled the end of fighting in Europe of what was called The Great War (now known as WW I). Greenfield, according to F.R. Harris in his book "Hometown Chronicles," began celebrating that first Armistice Day at 4 a.m. when the night watchman gave the bell in the tower of Town Hall a few taps to signal the good news. After whistles blew, bells rang and guns were fired, a barbeque was held at noon in the town square followed by a wreath being laid at the Memorial Tablet next to City Building. The Tablet listed those who had lost their lives in the Great War. In the impromptu parade that followed the barbeque a hearse with a coffin carrying an effigy of the German Kaiser was one of the floats and when the hearse reached the center of town, the "Kaiser" was strung up on a guy wire and riddled with bullets.  Today our celebrations of Veterans Day are just as heartfelt if not a little quieter.

    It is really hard to believe that it is December again and time for
    poinsettias, pine, and pies. We at the Greenfield Library want to say
    thanks for being great patrons, and hope you are preparing for a great
    Christmas. Times are a lot harder for many people this year, but the
    greatest gift of Christmas is love. Share kindness and joy with all you
    meet and your holiday season will take on new happiness. If you need
    some new ideas, or recipes, or entertainment, stop by and check us out.
  • Lynchburg Community Voice
    As the year comes to a close, the office is busy finalizing paperwork to close out the books. Over the last two years, our local government has come a long way to balance the budget and meet several State and Federal mandates. Though it has been a rough road, and many hard decisions were made, I believe we, as a community, are in a much better financial standing today, than a year ago. Much of our long-term debt, is now guaranteed with payments that will not increase the regular utility invoice. All of our OEPA, State Mandated new debt, for the Wastewater Plant Upgrade, is guaranteed without an increase in the regular monthly invoice.
