Granger Centennial Committee to hash out plans at series of meetings

GRANGER - The Granger Centennial Committee will meet 10 times in the next three months to hash out plans to help celebrate the city of Granger's 100th birthday.

Committee member Mary Kresse said the centennial committee will meet July 2, 16 and 30; Aug. 6 and 20; Sept. 3 and 17; and Oct. 1, 8 and 15 to discuss three projects the committee would like to see completed. The committee meets at the Granger Community Center, located at 121 Sunnyside Avenue. The meetings begin at 1 p.m. and usually last about an hour.

The three projects the committee is meeting about include a banquet that will be held October 17 to celebrate Granger's centennial.

Kresse also said that the committee is trying to create a new book to complement the one that was written about the city of Granger in 1975. Kresse said the committee has been contacting Granger citizens who have been around since then.

"We're trying to continue the book from 1975 to the present," Kresse explained.

She said many citizens are sending in photos and stories from this period.

The third project the committee is trying to complete is a photo history of Granger. Kresse said the city was incorporated in 1909 and so far the committee has collected photographs that detail life in Granger up to the 1920s.

"We have a long way to go, obviously," she said.
