This year our Dr. Orland award for volunteering went to Amy Binns-Calvey for her amazing and committed work with the Haymarket Martyrs Monument. Amy has been giving our monthly tour for the past two years. We are so fortunate to have her knowledge and passion.
Join Amy the first Saturday of the month (May-October) 11:00 am at the Haymarket Martyrs Monument in Forest Home Cemetery.

Our annual Veterans Day Dinner and Program is a time for our community to come together to recognize the sacrifices of the veterans in our community.

These stories can be found on our website.
During our annual meeting, The Historical Society of Forest Park said goodbye and thank you to our retiring board members Terry Steinbach, Chris Everett, Nancy Cavaretta, and Brian Kuhr and welcomed new board members Daniel Cross, Carol Gulyas, and Kristin Lyons.
