Town Hall Open House

The dedication of Taylorsville’s new town hall was a great success!  Former mayor Larry Kelly started the celebration with a ribbon cutting.  Mayor Kelly was instrumental in obtaining a grant to fund construction of the new town hall.  Mrs. Bonnie Vowell catered the “open house” event.  Also helping were Hilda Powell, Janette Brewer, Margie Harper.
