4/6/2019 - Southbury 101 Lecture on May 2, 2019

On Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 6:30-8:30pm, in the Kingsley Room, John and Lynn Dwyer will discuss the formation of the government of the Town of Southbury, how it has changed over time and how it currently operates at Southbury Public Library.

Join us to learn more about the history of Southbury’s town government, and how it currently works. John Dwyer, Town Historian, will discuss the formation of the government of Southbury, and how it has changed in configuration and priorities over the years. Lynn Dwyer, Town Clerk, will discuss how the town government currently operates.

Lynn and John Dwyer are both natives of western Connecticut who came to Southbury in 1984 to undertake the restoration of her ancestral home, a project for which they received a Merit Award from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. Shortly afterwards John was nominated to serve on the town’s Historic Buildings Commission and in addition he now holds the post of Municipal Historian. Lynn has been a town employee since 1993. In 2016 she rose to the position of Town Clerk having worked in that department for several decades.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register. The Bozzuto Lecture Series were made possible through a gift in honor of Richard Bozzuto.
