The committee met in Lavaca’s City Hall on Tuesday evening to prepare for Lavaca’s upcoming 100th birthday celebration. The Centennial Committee has chosen October 5, 2019 as the day of celebration. Lavaca was legally established, or incorporated, as a town in 1919. We don’t need an event like this to go unnoticed! A group of ten people representing the city and its citizens are working on different activities to be held on that date.
Some of the things that were decided upon, and/or discussed, include a town picnic, live music, games, historic displays, a parade, car show, 5K run, rodeo night and many other activities to make a full day of events.
The city will be burying a time capsule in the City Hall lawn to be opened, most likely, in 2069. Some of the items to include were talked about but all of the committee wants to know what our citizens would like to put in the vault. If you have any ideas what you would like to see place in the vault for a future generation or two, you can reply in the comments below and the committee will review them.
All of Lavaca and its current and past citizens need to mark their calendars for October 5 and help make this a day that they will still be talking about when they meet to reveal the vault in fifty years!
