Two recently refurbished buggies will be on display in front of the Lincoln Area Archives Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Members of Native Sons, under the guidance of Billy Aidnik, obtained and worked on refurbishing the buggies. Recently, the buggies were moved to a local shop where Gary Brockman and Dennis McLeod continued working on the larger buggy. Brockman has spent many hours putting the project together, sanding, painting, finding parts, and completing upholstery work. The Lincoln Area Archives Museum is at 472 E St. in Lincoln.
