Memorial to former Brecon Mayor Susan Francis
On May 21, 2004 a memorial oak tree and bronze plaque honoring the late Susan Francis were dedicated at the Saline Municipal Building. The former Mayor of Brecon was a close friend of the Saline-Brecon sister city relationship for many years before her death last year. The tree and plaque were a gift to the City from a group of Saline donors, led by former Mayor Mark Hopper. Several members of the Saline Brecon Friendship Guild gathered on the west lawn of the Municipal Building and later in the Council Chambers to honor "Susan".
