  • 2 National Register Plaques for 2 Historic Sisters

Our National Register Plaque Program honored each of them last fall with historic markers on the homes where they lived. Adding to our knowledge and admiration of these women, the Sunnyside Reformed Church hosted 2 plays and an evening of films.
