Thanks to the Girl Scouts who weeded our gardens.
The Lemont Area Historical Society would like to thank the girl scouts and especially the Birthday Girl who decided to have a "Weed Pulling Birthday Party" at the LAHS Museum gardens. Really appreciate their hard work along with Donna Holous from the Friendship Garden and the birthday girl's mom for pitching in and helping. THANK YOU!
Lemont Board Honors WWII Veterans
The Lemont Village Board honored Jessie Tasharski and Joseph Forzley, WWII Veterans, at a ceremony at Village Hall. Both of them went on the Honor Veterans Flight and felt both honored and humbled by the experience and recognition.
The Lemont Area Historical Society wishes to thank Howard Johnson, his son-in-law Mark, and Gary White for being in the Keepataw Parade 2013 with their antique cars and helping to represent us – Doris and Susan were fortunate enough to ride in the 1917 Stanley Steamer this year.
Keepataw Days will now only be a memory for many of us, since it was decided that financially it could not continue.A tradition now lost. It will, however, remain a pleasant, fun, part of our Lemont childhood that we will always treasure.
