“Brevard’s 150th anniversary is a wonderful time for all of us to celebrate our heritage and learn more about the history of our town. We have a series of special events planned throughout the year so that we can celebrate this milestone event together as a community. We have so much to be proud of about how Brevard was established and the people who helped shape the town as it grew into the city we love today. I’m excited about our celebration events. There is something to appeal to everyone. I encourage folks to come out and participate, celebrate, learn about the past as we work to create an even better future.”
