Lance Burr, a true Kaw River warrior, passed away on Monday evening, May 13, 2013. Lance was a founding board member and the first president of Friends of the Kaw. He also established our Endowment Fund. He served on our board as either an active or honorary board member from 1997 to 2013 and we will all dearly miss him. Pictured are Laura Calwell, Lance and Mike Calwell at the reception in March of 2010 celebrating the conservation easement for his Buck Creek property. Lance was active in many community concerns for Lawrence and Kansas. Our deepest sympathy goes to his family, particularly his children, Dustin and Desiree.
