Locust will celebrate its 150th anniversary this year! (1869-2019) The celebration will take place September 20-22nd.
The next committee meeting will be Tuesday, July 30th, at 6:00 PM in the Joel Huneycutt Community Room. The committee is still looking for residents to volunteer on the planning committee and with day-of assistance.
50 years ago, for the 100th anniversary celebration, Locust residents, civic groups, schools, and churches were all hands on deck, creating a whole week of celebratory events that included 2 parades, a beauty pageant, beard contest, live music events, community dinners, and even a “slab city” storefront which featured a bank, saloon, and jail!
