Welcome to the Placer County Historical Society...
Mike Lynch Picks New Badge
Well, just make our day!
There's a new badge in town.
It belongs to our life member Michael G.
"Mike" Lynch. He is leaving his post this
month (May) as acting superintendent of the Auburn State Recreation
This will allow Lynch to work full time as president and CEO
of the California State Park Anniversary Committee.
To no one's surprise, he has already designed the special
sesquicentennial badge and put his name on it. (See below).
The committee is a registered nonprofit organization busy
putting together next year's 150th State Parks anniversary observance.
Lynch can go badge-to-badge, memorabilia-to-memorabilia
with the best of them. This includes the likes of award-winning movie
actor-director-producer Clint Eastwood ("Go ahead, make my day"
