Remembering Director Larry Hall

The Lower Platte South NRD Board of Directors and Staff are saddened by the passing, March 20th, of Subdistrict 8 Director Larry Hall. Hall was first elected to the board in 2005 and re-elected three times. He served as Chair of the board's Information and Education Subcommittee and the Land Resources Subcommittee. Larry's commitment to preserving and protecting our environment was truly an inspiration and he will be missed by us all.
