The Blanco County Sesquicentennial Celebration in Johnson City will be on Saturday, June 7, 2008, on and around the Courthouse Square from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Come out and join us for entertainment, music, food, games and demonstrations. The county judge has granted the B.C.150 committee permission to use both the Courthouse lawn and the vacant lot across the street on the North side of the Courthouse. The City Council will also allow us to have the city street closed for our celebration, so there will be plenty of space for everyone to participate in the festivities.
The planning committees are looking for groups, businesses, and non-profit organizations willing to help make this a very special event in our county’s history. The groups and organizations interested in hosting food booths or concessions would be raising funds to support their group’s undertaking. We would also like any organizations or companies who are interested in promoting awareness to set up an exhibit booth or demonstration. In addition, we welcome anyone who has a special craft, hobby, or talent that they would like to share with the community.
If you or your group would like to participate in this celebration, please contact the following appropriate persons with your interest: food/concessions Rhonda Stell (830) 868-7275; exhibits Ray and Rosie Kunkel (830) 868-2281; music Penny Conn (830) 833-5426; and demonstrations/special events Conrad Carbary (830) 868-7266.
Additional information and a schedule of events will be available as the event approaches. Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us as we celebrate Blanco County’s 150th year. We know the people of Blanco County will make this milestone in our county’s history a memorable event. For any additional information or questions, please call Conrad Carbary at (830)868-7266.
