Join us at 9:30 AM every Monday now through May 7 for a series of lifelong learning for ages 50 and better. Each week we'll hear from a different local expert on a wide-variety of topics.

On Monday, February 26, Kevin Alderson will be sharing the history of Wisconsin's Cheyenne Valley and the African Americans who settled there around 1850. This ahead-of-its-time community, located near what is now Hillsboro, was the largest rural African American community in the 19th century and was made up of several bi-racial and tri-racial families.
