On Tuesday, June 8, the Great Falls Historical Society presented Celebrate Great Falls Foundation with a donation of $23,000 to support continued efforts to promote the rich history of the Great Falls area within the community. The Historic Society also recognized the contribution of Mike Kearney (The Old Brogue Irish Pub), to the community. Founded in 1977, the Great Falls Historical Society closed its doors recently. Over the past 44 years, they have preserved the history of the community and recognized outstanding contributions with the annual Jean Tibbetts History Award. This year, the final award was presented to Mike Kearney in recognition of his unique contribution to and preservation of community spirit. Celebrate Great Falls Foundation looks forward to continuing the spirit of the Great Falls Historical Society. For more information, contact Erin Lobato, Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
