2018 Lexington, KY Reunion
The Boone Society had three full days of field trips to historical Boone related sites. Some of the special events included a wreath laying at the Daniel Boone Memorial at the Kentucky National Guard, a visit to Squire Boone’s Station – Painted Rock, a tour and lunch at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, an all-day event at Fort Boonesborough which included lunch, a visit to Boone’s Station in Athens, KY and then to nearby Edward Boone Memorial burial site. Our Saturday night Banquet was made special by our speaker Rusty Cottrel, and music by Larry Spisak.
Near the end of the program, Board Member Eldon Evans presented to all of the attending Boone Society Vietnam Veterans, a Presidential Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. It was a very moving ceremony and an official welcome home for our dedicated Boone family Veterans.
