Join Giovanni Andreazzi and John Gross as they present a lively program on the history of Goat Hill. Sponsored by the Alliance Historical Society, the program will take place on Wednesday, April 26, at 7 p.m., in Rodman Library’s Main Auditorium. Goat Hill is an area in the eastern part of Alliance that was famous for its athletes and sports teams. The story is told that because there were so many Welsh immigrants in the area, and their Welsh ancestors were goat herders, it came to be called Goat Hill.
Join us for a relaxed afternoon of poetry reading on Saturday, April 29, from 2:30 to 5 p.m., in Rodman Main Auditorium. Four Ohio poets will read from their published works and at the conclusion of all reading will invite attendees to ask questions.
