Page 2A ~ The Gienville Democrat -- Thursday, Oct. 14,2004 Glenvil HISTORY & MUSIC -- Olive and Tom Dadisman, a husband and wife team, put on an interesting and entertaining program at the September 13 Glenville Woman's Club meeting. Olive spoke about her efforts to promote the Anna Jarvis Birthplace Museum in Grafton --- a historic Mother's Day site which was visited on a field trip by members of the Glenville Club this past year. Tom, a GSC alumnus and former football player, sang some novel and humorous songs that he had composed over the years. The couple still maintain their Glenville ties, and were appreciated by the Club women who enjoyed the duo's lively program at the Ciub's regular monthly meeting for September.
