Red House project needs volunteer help
It may be just a pile of logs now, but soon the project to recreate Cape Girardeau founder Louis Lorimier's Red House and make it into an interpretative center in time for the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition will take shape.
To make this happen, volunteers are needed. So far, the Cape Girardeau Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Commission hasn't had trouble finding volunteers so much as finding volunteers who will agree to work at specific times. In addition, work crews need both skilled and unskilled workers.
It's interesting to speculate how Lorimier might have handled this situation -- perhaps with a firearm or similar incentives. But this is a friendly project, and it is intended to be fun as well.
If you or your group would like to be a part of recreating the city's earliest history, call 335-1631 to make arrangements.
Leave your knives and pistols at home.
