MAY- 2024
Thursday, May 16th- 5pm- Plymouth County Historical Museums Annual Banquet

​The Plymouth County Historical Museum is excited to announce our 2024 Annual Banquet, on Thursday, May 16th at 5:00.

​​This years theme is “Revisiting the Spotlight: LCHS Drama returns to Old Central after 60 years”

​​Our entertainment for the night will be a performance by the Le Mars Community High School Drama Department, as they will be putting on an excerpt from their 2024 Spring Play, "Perit on the High Seas Or... Let's Get Together and Do Launch." We are honored to be hosting them and excited to see the LCHS performers return to the historic "Old Central" stage after 60 years. From 1924 to 1964, all of Le Mars High School's plays were held inside the "Old Central" gym and on the same stage where they will be hosting our entertainment for the night. The gym will be decked out in a fancy roaring 20s theme, as that is also the theme of the play.

​​Tickets are 30 dollars each and are available online at this link:
