We are discussing events & meetings with COVID-19 precautions in mind. This means events will be on a one-by-one decision basis. Check back for updates.
Lenexa Community Days Porch Parade2020 20 200 2020 2020
While the usual parade can’t go on this year, our city came up with the next best thing we can do – they’ve done a little switcheroo, and now we stay still while you drive around to see our decorated establishments.
The City of Lenexa set up an interactive map on their website HERE (Map will be updated starting July 1st) that shows what organizations are participating so that you can create a self-guided tour to see all the deocrations and show love to your local organizations. As you can guess, LHS is a part of the Porch Parade, so come by and check us out at the Legler Barn!
This event will run from July 1st, 2020 to July 4th, 2020. The theme this year is There’s No Place Like Home.

John Forbes will present The Movement of Shawnee Indians from the Ohio Valley to Kansas: 1780’s – 1830’s.
For 34 years, Mr. Forbes taught U.S. History at Shawnee Mission South High School. He is the State Historian for the Sons of the American Revolution, is involved with the Shawnee Indian Mission, has been a Lewis and Clark reenactor, and is a lifelong resident of the KC area.
His extensive knowledge of the Shawnee will be both educational and entertaining. There will be a Q and A session following his presentation.
