CCC meeting at Old Courthouse

The Citrus County Council will present Citrus County’s colorful past at its next meeting, at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, at the old Courthouse Heritage Museum, 1 Courthouse Square, Inverness. 

Most of the council’s usual business agenda will be suspended for this meeting. Instead, there will be a special presentation by John Grannen, president of the Citrus County Historical Society, and Kathy Turner-Thompson, historical resources manager. 

A docent-led tour of the new exhibit at the museum, “Changing People, Changing Springs: Chassahowitzka Discovered!” will round out the meeting.

The meeting will take place in the second floor courtroom, accessible by elevator. Coffee and networking will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the meeting will open at 9 a.m.

Free parking with no time limit is available at the public parking lot east of the Old Courthouse. 

The Citrus County Council is a non-partisan, nonprofit consortium of homeowner associations, civic clubs, environmental groups, and concerned citizens. For more information about the CCC, visit www.citruscountycouncil.org.

Monthly meetings are always open to the public. Members invite all to come join them to learn more about the rich and colorful history of Citrus County.
