40 years ago: New Knights of Columbus Hall dedicated

June 18, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 18, 1972:

  • Dedication ceremonies were scheduled this week at the new Knights of Columbus hall, 2206 E. 23rd. Grand Knight Jerry Albertson estimated that the building had cost $250,000, with much of the work donated by council members. About 400 persons were expected to attend the opening ceremonies, including local and state dignitaries and governmental officials, who were to be treated to dinner and a cocktail hour.
  • Children aged 5-7 were invited to join staffers of Kansas University's Museum of Natural History on a small mammal Safari later this month. Bob Cinq-Mars, a graduate student in mammology at KU, was to take the children to the Baker Wetlands nature area where they would learn how and where small mammals lived in both suburban and rural areas -- where they lived, what they ate, and how they cared for their young and interacted with one another.
