At the Springs Preserve Thursday, March 5 “Las Vegas Families” will share their experiences of our early community. Far from the bright neon spotlight, meet the families who played key roles in helping Las Vegas form and mature as a community.  Families such as the Fongs, the Tomiyasus and many others were instrumental in helping Las Vegas grow into more than just a railroad town. Learn about these families’ contributions as well as something equally important – their legacies – at this program made possible in part by a grant from Nevada Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Tickets are $12 for non-members, $10 for members, $6.50 for children. The event will run from 7 PM – 8:30 PM.

Scheduled to appear are Paul Carson, noted Las Vegas Historian, Bill Gildner, 3rd Generation Native and Las Vegas Valley High Graduate, class of 1941, June Eddins, Native and Longtime Las Vegas Resident since 1930. Other participants to be announced

The Springs Preserve is located at 333 S. Valley View Blvd. (At Meadows Lane, between Alta Drive and US 95)
