Pierce 1860 Days

   Plans for this year's 1860 Days are well underway, and we know this will be another exciting year, 1860 Days' 50th.

   We are looking for more vendors, mainly craft and arts vendors, and also everyone, group or individual, who wishes to be in the parade--this year's parade should be huge! We had 45 entries in 2009, and already, there are new people already expressing interest in this one.

   Ads are also being assembled for the program, and as it is the anniversary year, we have increased interest here too. If you wish to place an ad in this year's program, please contact Kathy at 464-1083 or Carmen at 464-1088. As it is going to be more pages and more copies will be printed, it is sure to become a collectible. You will want to be in this one. The next meeting will be Thursday, April 8, at 6 p.m., at A Blue Moose in Pierce. Everyone is welcome!
