INDIAN TRAIL – The Indian Trail Town Council recently recognized the work of the late Lane Vickery, her husband, Larry, and her family to make the town a better place.
The former councilwoman, who passed away in 2017, championed the arts and literacy in the community. She also worked to protect the appearance and beautification of the Indian Trail cemetery and served in numerous civic groups, such as the Union West Rotary Club.
The council read a proclamation in her honor as part of Founders Day 2019, which celebrates Indian Trail’s 112th birthday.
“The Town of Indian Trail would not be where it is today if not for the contributions and achievements of the Vickery family,” read the proclamation.
The celebration continues 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 2 at Indian Trail Town Hall, 315 Matthews-Indian Trail Road.
The public is invited to come learn about the Vickery family. The event includes historical games, presentations, memorabilia, food and drink.
