Fire & Ice Party kicks off Glenwood’s 150th anniversary celebration
The City of Glenwood’s celebration of the 150th anniversary of its founding kicked off with some sparks on Friday.
A Fire & Ice party was hosted by Central Square Cultural and Civic Center, and started out with a marshmallow roast on the historic building’s grounds.
The event was sponsored by the Glenwood Founding 150th committee, which is chaired by Karina Mork. The time capsule, which will be at all of the year’s events, was also at Central Square on Friday night.
The year-long celebration will feature at least one anniversary event each month. The committee also produced a commemorative calendar for 2016 and those calendars are available for sale in Glenwood at Meco 7, the Pope County Tribune, the chamber office, Eagle Bank and at the Pope County Museum. The calendars are just $10 with the proceeds helping to finance the year-long celebration.
