All are invited to attend and show support for the City of Kent’s application to designate the three Lunar Rovers on the Moon as Historic Landmarks on Thursday, July 25.
This meeting will be held from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at Kent City Hall, and will be conducted by the King County Landmarks Commission, which will deliberate the merits of the application.
It will include a presentation about the history of the Kent-built Lunar Rovers, used in Apollo missions 15, 16 and 17, and why the city is seeking historical status.
In addition, the Commission will hear testimony from Mayor Dana Ralph; Mike Lombardi, Boeing’s historian; Kent landmark commissioner Nancy Simpson and others who understand the importance of Kent’s role in the Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions.
The meeting will be followed by a brief reception.
