On Monday, January 23 at 7 pm the Historical Society will honor local history buffs and historical society founders, Morris “Butch” and Linda Thomas.
Butch and Linda have been members of the historical society since its inception in 1991. Through the years, Butch has served as President and Linda as Secretary, and is the current Treasurer. They have been business owners in Lemay and are very active in various local activities, including the Sunset Hills Conservation Foundation, as well as volunteering with bringing the Vietnam Memorial Wall to Sunset Hills.
The Thomases have been active in the Sunset Hills Historical Society from the early days, and were involved in the 50th Anniversary of Sunset Hills and the display of the Vietnam Wall at Lindbergh High School. Butch has served as President of the SHHS for four years, and Linda has been the treasurer from the beginning.
Butch has been awarded Citizen of the Year from the Sunset Hills Crestwood Chamber of Commerce in 2007 and received the Edgar P. Crecilius award from the Lemay Chamber of Commerce in 1993.
Please join us in honoring Butch and Linda as 2017 Historians of the Year, at Sunset Hills City Hall, 3939 South Lindbergh Blvd.
We look forward to seeing you at Monday’s meeting!
Anne Jesse, Secretary
Sunset Hills Historical Society
