Scottsville Tribute

Joanne Yeck and Raymon Thacker, 2010.  Photo by Connie Geary.

Those of you who had the opportunity to meet Raymon Thacker know what a treasure he was.

The photograph above documents a splendid conversation we had in July of 2010, while I was in residence for my Jefferson Fellowship.  Raymon shared numerous Scottsville stories and photos with me, several of which are included in my newest book, Peter Field Jefferson: Dark Prince of Scottsville and Lost Jeffersons.

On Sunday, April 8, at 2 PM, Scottsville Museum will open for the 2018 season with a tribute to Raymon Thacker’s long and illustrious life.  The ceremony at the Museum will be followed by the ribbon-cutting for the newly reconstructed canal packet boat at Canal Basin Square.  This event will be followed by live music.

Beginning April 8, Peter Field Jefferson: Dark Prince of Scottsville and Lost Jeffersons will be for sale at Scottsville Museum.
