The Forestville Lecture Series presents File Clerk Robert Bland, at 7:30 p.m., Friday July 3rd at the home of Forestville resident Cookie Genison.
Bland has filed away millions of files and moved numerous boxes in his career, including accounting, insurance and general memos. His filing and alphabetizing abilities have resulted in positive work reviews and several raises. One supervisor wrote that, “Bland knows what he is doing when he must put a file in a drawer or storage or lift a 30 pound box onto a cart.”
A native of Delaware, Mr. Bland moved to Forestville in 1989 and has served as a file clerk with many companies throughout his professional career.
The Forestville Lecture Series is presented by the Warren G. Harding Society of Forestville and offers lectures on a wide and diverse range of topics by local eminent authorities.

The International Olympic Committee ended months of suspense and announced Forestville will not host the 2022 Olympic Winter games, according to multiple sources.
Even though Forestville has no infrastructure to support such a project, a spokesperson for the Forestville Tourism Association expressed shock when she said “We are shocked that they said no.”
Forestville is located in central Connecticut and is so named because it was a wooded area when it was established in 1833. Despite the development of homes and businesses over the last one hundred and fifty years it remains a wooded area except for the areas where it is not.
