The program will feature Debbie Moore, author of “Confederate Voices.”
In addition to being a local author and re-searcher, Moore is a local educator and vice president of the Bradley County Historical & Genealogical Society.
She and her husband Ron host a radio show, “Old Town Cleve-land,” dedicated to preserving the stories of Bradley County and the surrounding communities. The show airs Saturday mornings on WOOP-FM. Moore will discuss her book as well as her many other important projects.
"We are happy to have Debbie presenting at our monthly meeting," said Joe Bryan, CCH Historical Society president.
"Her extensive research and documentation in this area is such a generous service for our future generations."
The Hiwassee River Heritage Center is set to open next month, but the meeting will be a sneak preview of the progress that has been made with the renovation efforts.
A former bank branch was purchased by the CCH Historical Society to be repurposed into a heritage center. The soon-to-open heritage center is located at 8746 Hiwassee St. (Hwy.11).
The group meets each month on the third Sunday at 3 p.m. at various locations in the Calhoun and Charleston communities.
Membership is $10 per year and comes with special discounts at the groups events throughout the year.
