In 2022, we celebrated four new Places that Matter plaques – #90: Hamilton Harron Funeral Home on Cemetery Road #91: Militant Mothers of Raymur Pedestrian Bridge #92: China Creek Bowls Skatepark and #93: Seraphim “Joe” Fortes.

Thank you to our plaque sponsors, guest speakers and to all who were able to join the celebrations. Stay tuned for 2023!
