In the spring of 2016, Eston will mark it’s centennial as an incorporated community.
To begin the planning process to mark the milestone, Eston mayor Al Heron recently called a meeting of representatives from a cross-section of community organizations.
It was decided at the meeting that the main celebrations will be held over the July 1st long weekend in 2016. In addition, it is hoped that as local organizations plan activities for that year they will keep the centennial in mind.
Named to a committee to oversee the centennial planning were Shari Collinge, Gwen Etter, Irina Hartsook, Leslie Kraft, Dustin Meyer, Jonathan Meyer and Pat Toner. Kirk Cumiskey joins the committee as the Town of Eston representative.
Thompson was named committee chairman with Jonathan Meyer vice-chairman and Shari Collinge secretary.
The committee plans to meet monthly . Its first task will to identify possible community events for the centennial year.
Committee members want to hear from area residents who have ideas for events to mark the centennial or who would like to be involved as volunteers.
“This is a community celebration,” Thompson said. “The more community input we have into the planning process the better the celebration will be. It is always better to have too many ideas to work with than too few.”
