County Historical Commission Hosts Third Annual Luncheon Recognizing Collin County Historical Preservationists and Educators
(McKinney, TX) – All media agencies are invited to attend the Collin County Historical Commission's annual Preservation Celebration, an invitation-only a gala event honoring all historical organizations in the county. This year it's being held at the Frisco Heritage Center, with a brunch catered by Babe's Chicken House. This is an event that last year drew approximately 150 people to Farmersville. The invitation list consists of members from every historical preservation and education organization in the county, along with county and municipal officials.
The keynote speaker this year is Carolyn Corbin, an internationally renowned socioeconomic futurist, author, speaker, historian, consultant to governments of many nations and top corporations, and Collin County resident. The Historical Commission is exceptionally privileged to have her speak at this event, not only because of the great demand for her but also because she is an incredibly gifted, insightful and inspirational speaker.
In addition, several groups and individuals will receive awards for their work in historical preservation and education. Nominees have been received in the last few weeks for these awards, which specifically recognize leadership and excellence in historical work around the county on the part of organizations/municipalities, individuals and youth, along with designating a Collin County Living Legacy, who is an individual honored for a lifetime of preserving Collin County history.
Preservation Celebration is this Saturday, May 2, 2009, beginning at 9:00 am, at the Frisco Heritage Center and Museum on 6455 Page Street, Frisco, Texas, just east of Frisco City Hall.
