The Lawrence Preservation Alliance has a very special event planned for our 2016 Annual Meeting of Membership. We will meet at the Carnegie Library.
After arrival and snacks, we will be treated to a panel discussion of Mexican-American elders from 2-3pm: "Remembering La Yarda." From its construction in 1924 to its demise in the 1951 flood, La Yarda thrived as a small housing complex at the east end of 8th street for section gang workers on the Santa Fe Railroad and their families.
A brief business meeting for LPA members will follow. More information on this great event will be sent by e-mail and the next LPA newsletter.
