Four Corners and a Railroad Crossing

At the April 8, 2019 meeting retiring Police Chief Gary Vest reflected on his years in Powell as retirement approaches. His presentation was entertaining but with the serious point that Powell has consistently defined and meant community. He explained how the land marks of "The Four Corners and the Railroad Crossing" are two important indicators of how we view ourselves . There was a Power Point presentation with special photos of historic interest. Refreshments, with an emphasis on chocolates to please the Chief, were served.
