REGULAR MEETINGS

Learn about the History of Ambulance Service in Lakefield at the next Lakefield Historical Society Meeting on Thursday November 24th, 2022, at 7:00 PM Upper Hall Lakefield Legion, Branch 77, Lakefield. Dan Farrow will speak about “The History of Ambulance Service in Lakefield” beginning with Hendren & Anderson Funeral homes. He has several framed displays. Did you know early ambulance service was carried out by our local Funeral homes? Imagine how the sick person felt when they saw the name on the side of the vehicle when it pulled up to take them away. There is no charge for attendance, but membership is available at $20.00 annually which helps support the work we do. If you have any questions or have an idea for future presentations, contact us at lakefieldhistorical@gmail.comI hope to see you there!
