At long last after a year’s worth of planning, the kick-off event is here! On Saturday, August 17, 1968, the queen who will reside over all the festivities is chosen. It was a tough choice, for the contestants for the beauty pageant were a “bevy of beauties” – – Sheila Arthurs, Bonnie Getz, Gail Loper, Amber Lund and Arles Mills.
Gail would reside over all the centennial events the coming week.
Activities would begin again on Thursday, August 22nd.
