Three new directors were elected to the LCHS board of Directors last weekend (5/19/13) during the annual meeting of the Lawrence County Historical Society. They included Cyndie Harlan of Lead, JoAnna Jones of Spearfish, and Mary Gallup-Livingston of Whitewood. We'll be telling you more about these new members in our next posting.
Keynote speaker for the meeting was landscape architect Mike Bender who works out of Rapid City for KLJ Engineering, discussed restoration of St. Ambrose Catholic Cemetery in Deadwood. The project is being undertaken with financial support from the Deadwood Historic Preservation Fund.
About 37 members and guests attended the luncheon meeting catered by Dave Brueckner and the folks from Cheyenne Crossing -- always a big hit.
The society last month conducted another of its highly successful LCHS Tours. This time, members and guest enjoyed beautiful weather for a wonderful tour that took us through old Crook City and into Whitewood, where we enjoyed a great lunch and dessert -- and had a great tour of several historic Whitewood locations.
