PLAINS — More than 40 residents whose contributions HAVE made lifelong impacts on the town of Plains will be honored by the Plains Historical Preservation Trust at a ceremony at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2 at the Plains Community Center. The public is invited.
Those honored and memorialized include men who served as town founders, bank presidents, school superintendents, farmers, doctors, mayors, ministers, military veterans, professors, pharmacists, politicians and more. Former President Jimmy Carter will be among the “Living Legends” who will be recognized.
All the men in some way left their mark on a local, state, national, or international scale.
The Plains Historical Preservation Trust committee has spent months organizing the program. Members were asked to submit names of potential honorees, with the Trust board making the final decisions.
“Men of Plains” is a follow-up program to the 2017 “Women of Plains” ceremony that recognized the leading females who made significant contributions to the town during the past 130-plus years, since its founding in 1885. Well over 100 people attended last year’s event.
