Plans for the Nooksack Centennial Celebration are moving right along. It is only about 7 weeks away, being held on September 8th.
I wound up handling publicity and entertainment, but I'm thrilled at how it is all falling together.
Above is one of the banners we have along Highway 9.
Here is the BIG banner, being carried by some kids I recruited the day before the parade for the Everson Nooksack Festival.
We will be serving hot dogs, ice cream and cake. Afterall, it is a birthday party!!! What else would you serve?
The entertainment includes two barbershop choruses, an Elvis impersonator, the Nooksack Indian Tribe with a drum ceremonial and dancing, and hopefully a Latina rock band.
Several businesses are having open house that day.
I'm hoping that Country Partners 4-H group decides to provide a petting zoo.
AND, we have a carriage drawn by draft horses that will give free rides through town and on my farm, past the homestead house of Mary Harkness and the 120 year old barn. I'm really excited about sharing my farm for this purpose. It is the only piece of agricultural zoned property left here in town, and it will provide a living history lesson to those who take the ride.
The Celebration will be held in Nooksack City Park on Saturday, September 8th from noon to 3pm.
Oh, I forgot to mention that my church, Nooksack Christian Fellowship, will be holding open house from 11am until 5pm. Their building is also 100 years old this year, and they will be featuring on display the vintage quilt that I researched and traced back to this church.
Now, let's all pray for a bright sunny day!
