Peggy Scott and David Austin will be recognized as the Pioneer Woman and Man for 2014 by the Lake Placid Historical Society in a Saturday event that highlights Pioneer Week. The 31st annual Pioneer Week is Highlands County’s oldest such tribute to early settlers.
Scott and Austin will be presented by Maxine Kelley and Debra Worley who submitted their nominations. The honorees will share their family history and tales of growing up in Lake Placid, and a few photos. “Bring your own Lake Placid historic high school yearbooks, calendars, family photos and other relevant documents to display at the event or donate to the society,” urged spokesman Kay Tarr.
