The program is co-sponsored by the Las Vegas Historic Preservation

A brief meeting, election of officers and presentation of the annual
Preservation Awards will be followed by a talk by Debbie Aberle,

open to the public and will be followed by a reception. Aberle is
serving as a consultant to the Las Vegas Historic Preservation
Commission, evaluating and making recommendations on the historic Las
Vegas High School Neighborhood.
