From Dr. Lonnie:
The END of an ERA
The Liberace Museum is closed and the
“The Hammargren Home of Nevada History”
Hold its annual Nevada Day Open House
It is with deep regret that I must cancel my annual Nevada Day event that was planned to be held this year on Sunday, Halloween, October 31st, 2010.
Although it was a sincere and honorable invite, this cancellation is due to the recent rain & wind, illness in my family and a very complicated legal situation wherein I have been successfully acquitted of inappropriate CRIMINAL charges in the construction and use of my house, which is now currently up to code. Hopefully in the future we will be able to entertain and share my extensive collection of old Nevada memorabilia collected over the past 39 years.
I am proud to be a Nevadan and to be able to experience the changes of this great city and State and to keep the memories alive! We have had fun along the way, whether it is a Halloween spook house, Nevada Days, live nativity scenes at Christmas, political fundraisers, fundraisers for many charitable organizations or Easter egg hunts, I have done it all with the sincere intention of bringing camaraderie and friendship to the general public.
It has been a pleasure entertaining all of you; unfortunately a few of my neighbors do not enjoy life to its fullest and insist that I curtail the enjoyment of my home by Clark County citizens. With all due respect to them; this was a major factor in postponing the Last Nevada Day open house at the “Hammargren Home of Nevada History”. I invite you to visit our website www.nevadadays.org and take your own virtual tour and view videos of past events held at my home.
Over the years, it has been a pleasure serving you all on the Nevada State Board of Education, University Board of Regents, Honorary Consulate to Belize, a renowned neurosurgeon for 35 years and as your Lieutenant Governor to the wonderful State of Nevada. May you all be blessed and be proud to be a part of our great State.
Thank you all,
Lonnie Hammargren, MD
