Larry Luckey On Indian Mounds At Museum Meet

LABELLE, FL. -- Former Glades County Property Appraiser Larry Luckey will be the guest speaker at the regular March program meeting of LaBelle Heritage Museum at LaBelle City Hall, 451 West Hickpochee Ave., on Thursday evening, March 6, at 7 o'clock. 

Mr. Luckey, an avid student of Southwest Florida history, will present his studies on Indian mounds in Southwest Florida ranging from those of the Belle Glade Culture around Lake Okeechobee that pre-dated the area's more famous Calusas who "greeted" both Juan Ponce de Leon in 1521 and Hernando de Soto in 1539.

The meeting is open to the public with refreshments served between Mr. Luckey's presentation and a short business meeting which will include a short recap of the recent Old Timers Dinner and the progress on the foundation work at 360 North Bridge Street for the two historic Rider buildings that are scheduled to be moved from their 20-year "temporary" location on South Lee Street by the end of March.
