Monticello Historical Society to meet
The Monticello Community Historical Society will meet Oct. 9 with a presentation by John Reichley titled “Prison City USA”, which of course will be about the city of Leavenworth. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at 23860 W. 83rd Street, Lenexa (the former fire station).
The society was awarded a grant by the Johnson County Commission to be used for preservation of historical documents and artifacts. A new computer and program software will be purchased for recording all historical records and for indexing museum artifacts. Archival boxes and supplies will be purchased to properly store donated museum artifacts.
