On Sunday, December 5, the community will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the placement of the Man on the Monument.
The program will begin at 3 p.m. and will be set up on the north side of the square, appropriate since this infantry soldier faces north, representing a Union soldier on his way home.
Attendees should dress warmly and bring a chair.
In the event of inclement weather, the program will be held in the First Presbyterian Church sanctuary on West Court Street, behind the Courthouse. Entrance would be through the west doors.
