We at the Trust are proud and honored to announce that Michael Gehron and Reed Tolber are both honored recipients at Broward County’s annual Pioneer Day.

Congratulations to you, Michael, for being honored for your family’s contribution to the city of Fort Lauderdale and for being a true descendant and Broward County Pioneer. Michael, your family is a true Broward County Pioneering family on both sides. I am grateful we met and so pleased the County chose you as this year’s honoree.

And congratulations to you, Reed, on winning the Stuart P. McIver Historian Award. You truly deserve this honor. I am confident they couldn’t have made any better choice.

Reed, this is a prime example of your hard work and determination regarding your historic firehouse #2. Please keep reaching for more, including our work towards the mini-historic district your corner deserves.

For the Trust, this is another special moment that brings about continued reflection and continued positive growth BTHP is moving in because of all the volunteer efforts each of you brings to Broward Trust for Historic Preservation, and I thank you all.

Letter from the president,
Michaela M.Conca
