Dinner will be 6-6:30 pm
Conversation will be 6:30-8 pm
Dessert will follow Conversation
The focus of this conversation will be discussing how the Route 30 Construction/ Cherry Ave SE Community destruction forever changed Canton.
In addition to hearing about how an act in the 1970’s decimated an entire community.
