Paving the Way
Meriwether Historical Society presented two awards to benefactors of our county
at its September meeting and picnic held on the grounds of the Hiram
home in Greenville. President Sallie Mabon,
right, and Sally Estes standing beside her, paid tribute to Rod and Linda
Wilburn who have been instrumental to many county improvements and achievements: building our animal shelter,
Habitat for Humanity, the Lovelight Program, their church, the Better Home Town Program, Greenville
Streetscapes, Rails to Trails, Court Square Café, the Print Shop Art Gallery,
restoration of several historic buildings in Greenville, Meriwether Chamber of
Commerce, and the Together in Meriwether Committee, and the upcoming
Expressions of Meriwether. Because of their support for the arts, tourism, and
economic growth for our area, the historical society honored them with a paver
for our next streetscape building project is set to start soon. “The pavers are
a wonderful way to remember someone for a long time,” said Better Home Town Manager
Sally Estes, and we have been blessed and fortunate that the Wilburns have been
so dedicated to our city and county.
Meriwether Historical Society purchased a paver in honor of Mando Corporation.
In 2012 our county courthouse received extensive exterior renovations, repairs,
and a “facelift” because of the generosity of Mando. Representing Mando was
Terry Birdsong, Human Resource Manager, who said Mando believes in giving back
to the community.
