Many are needed for birthday party

Many of us are old enough or have lived in Vandalia long enough to remember when the town celebrated it's 175th birthday. And, if you remember, correctly, it took a whole bunch of people to pull it off.
Now, the same kind of participation is going to be needed in the next couple of years.
Back in 1994, there were a bunch of committee for Vandalia's 175th Celebration. There was a committee to organize a parade, one to organize a festival, one to raise funds to help pay for the celebration, etc., etc.
Mayor Rick Gottman recently announced that he will begin pulling together people to work on Vandalia's 200th birthday celebration.
We're hoping that a lot of residents step forward to make this a celebration worthy of our town's age.
