Planning for Garfield’s 100th Centennial Celebration in 2005

The Garfield Community Club, along with various community members, continue planning for the city’s biggest celebration, it’s 100th year Centennial Celebration, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday, August 13 and 14, 2005.  There are many events being planned and they can’t all be packed into a single day, hence the addition of Sunday.  This year’s celebration is sure to eclipse all others in attendance and quality and quantify of events!

The Centennial Committee (made up of the Community Club and others participating) formalized its structure at the November 18, 2004 meeting.  Gaye Mounsdon is President and Treasurer.  Mike Schreiner is Vice Chairperson and Carla Nienaber is Secretary.  There were several committees formed to do much of the event planning, including history, sales/advertising, entertainment, etc. so the entire committee does not get bogged down trying to plan the event.  The committees have authority to make decisions and bring recommendations to the full committee for a final vote.
