    PALM SUNDAY 1965 REMEMBERED
    With local historian   CRAIG TROTT
    April 18 @ 6:30 p.m. @ the Greentown Public Library

    Register @ 628-3534
    April 11, 1965 changed the lives of Greentown residents and the look of the town forever. That’s the day that 47 tor­nadoes tore across 6 states killing 271 people; 10 of them in Greentown. 80 homes were destroyed, not to mention Eastern High School and other busi­nesses. Sadly, it wasn’t the last time that Mother Nature unleashed her fury on our peaceful little community; Greentown would be devastated again in 1998 when a tornado with a nearly identical path struck again.

    some of the most entertaining and powerful presentation tools and animations out there.


    Apr. 16 - *Numbers: Similar to MS Excel, but unlike Excel it is incredibly simple to link data
    to live graphs and turn a spreadsheet into a full blown presentation of data instead of just
    numbers on the page. You can embed video, audio and graphics with ease all while
    communicating “numbers” to your viewer.
