COLUMBUS—The monthly Polk County Historical Association program will be held Tuesday, August 8 at 2 p.m. inside the Polk County Museum. This month’s program will feature graduates from Polk Central High School’s class of 1960. 

The program should be a spirited affair with a panel of folks including Judy Arledge, Brenda Bean, Flloyd Foy and Jeanette Rickman. They will discuss their adventures of attending a larger, brand new high school with students from Columbus, Green Creek, Mill Spring, Pea Ridge and Sunny View. Attendees will hear from members of the very first graduating class. 

The museum is located at 60 Walker Street in downtown Columbus. As always the public is invited to attend and there is no charge for the program.
