Growing up in Columbia in the 1970s
Hello Fellow Columbians,
Did you grow up here in the 70’s? If so, we want to let you know about a very cool event being hosted by the Columbia Archives on Wed. Oct. 14 Here’s some info about the event from their website:
A Place for People to Grow will look at the culture of Columbia that led to community involvement and being a great place to live. A display at Columbia Archives from 7 – 7:30 will focus on some of the people who made a difference in Columbia. At 7:30 we move to Lakeside Café. Dr. Cindy Gueli, who grew up in Columbia and is a professor at American University, will moderate a panel of second generation Columbians to discover how growing up in Columbia in the 1970s influenced their lives.
If you grew up in Columbia and still live in the area, we urge you to attend. As we inch closer to a new Columbia with the downtown redevelopment, we feel it is essential to look back on how this amazing community shaped our lives, and more importantly how the next phase of Columbia’s history will shape our children’s lives.
Please send us a message if you’d like to attend. We plan to meet up at least once before the event and we’d love to hear your thoughts.
