Last night was the second installment of our Beaver Falls lecture series. Rick Davis, who grew up here before moving to Atlanta in 1984, shared with us his experience growing up in the “golden years” of Beaver Falls. Here, his heroes taught him the fundamentals of leadership, hard work, selflessness, and positivity. His love for Beaver Falls has not dwindled over the years, but exudes from his being. Everyone who knows him knows how grateful he is for his roots in this community. In his own words, Beaver Falls was the best place in the world to grow up. It was “the center of the universe”.
Thanks to Rick for sharing his story with us and all the lessons Beaver Falls and its everyday citizens and heroes taught him!
The third and final installment will feature Regina Jones and is to be held Wednesday, April 13th at 6 PM in the basement of the Carnegie Free Library.
