Subject:  2013 Free History Brown Bag Series about Greeley History
 
The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission continues the free 2013 History Brown Bag Series held on the 4th Thursday of each month from February through October, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.    The next Brown Bag will be on Thursday, September 26th at the Armory Building, 614 8th Avenue, at which local authors and historians Gabe and Jody Lopez will speak about the Spanish Colony.  Great Western Sugar Company built Greeley’s Spanish Colony in 1924 for Hispanic beet workers.  It was one of over 100 colonies the sugar beet industry constructed for beet workers.
 
This series provides citizens the chance to hear interesting historical topics, primarily focused on Greeley and Weld County, and it promotes local cultural heritage. “Discover history, architecture, great characters, culture and more at the History Brown Bag series,” encouraged Historic Preservation Commission Chair Becky Brunswig.
 
The remaining History Brown Bag schedule for 2013 is as follows:
September 26: Spanish Colony, Gabe and Jody Lopez, authors White Gold Laborers; Location change: Armory Building, 614 8th Ave.
