Friends Of Classic Las Vegas Holiday Party and Meeting

Sunday, December 14th. 2pm at the home of Marge Rea.

Special guest historian Mark Hall Patton from the Clark County Museum will be discussing his project to determine the origins of the street names of Vintage Vegas (no not the “tumbling turkey” names of the suburbs which are created by throwing words into a hat and pulling them out randomly), but names like Cambell, and Griffith and Bracken, and Lauri, and Gilmore and Pinto and Bannie.

We’ve been asked not to blog the address, so if you’d like to attend, just contact me, or Lynn Zook.
