LINDEN – The newly-formed Linden Society for Historic Preservation will help plan the celebration of the city’s 150th anniversary of incorporation and celebrate Linden’s history.
“The Linden Society for Historic Preservation’s mission is to educate, celebrate and commemorate that which is of historical value and significance, and to strive to preserve it,” said society President Lauren Pansurak Yeats. “The committee will plan a year that will honor the city’s past, most recently and significantly the city’s 150th anniversary, and prepare it for the future by celebrating its unique and storied past, and extraordinary future potential.”
The Linden Cultural and Heritage Committee will also participate in the planning of the 150th anniversary events, along with a volunteer committee.
“We will nurture and create opportunities for a variety of educational, civic, faith-based and business organizations to participate and celebrate the Celebration,” said Second Ward Councilman Richard Koziol, the society liaison. “We’ll also develop programs and activities that will educate residents about Linden’s history and support events that will provide educational outreach to residents and those outside the community.”
The Linden Society of Historic Preservation will meet at the Bedrick Room of the Linden Free Public Library, 31 East Henry Street, at 7 p.m. on April 20. All citizens who love history and enjoy learning about their hometown.
Linden’s 150th anniversary celebration will begin with a 5K road race and fun walk kick-off event on May 8, starting at 8:30 a.m. at Tiger Stadium at West Curtis and DeWitt Street.
