A Successful Town Hall Gathering

The Rutherford Dust Society hosted a town hall meeting on Thursday, October 13th. The purpose of the meeting was to inform our members about some important updates in our community, while also getting to enjoy the company of friends and neighbors in Rutherford.

The mood at the Rutherford Grange Hall was festive, especially because the building is gearing up for it’s 100th Anniversary celebration on November 6th. (Note: For tickets and more event information, email rutherfordhall100@gmail.com)

What Was Discussed?

The meeting began with a wine and cheese reception. Dan Moberg, Co-Executive Director of the Rutherford Dust Society covered RDS’ current initiatives and upcoming events, including the Community Holiday Party on December 4th. Vice President of Rutherford Dust Society Davie Pina gave a short talk about the Rutherford Grange Hall. During this portion of the meeting, Davie reviewed some of the important infrastructure improvements, as well as the new name for the building: Rutherford Hall!
