BUNN — As a part of the town of Bunn’s yearlong centennial celebration, organizers have planned a History Day for Friday, Aug. 30, 5-7 p.m. at the Bunn Branch Library, 610 Main St.
Historical maps of Bunn will be on display along with Bunn High student essays, old photographs and other centennial items.
Light refreshments will be served and a door prize will be awarded.
To help make the event more complete, Centennial Coordinator Sherry Mercer is looking for photos of old fire stations, fire trucks, rescues, police cars and the like. Copies of old photos and documents can be submitted to Bunn town hall or posted on the town’s Facebook page. They will be added to the town’s history scrapbook.
“I have seen more unity in Bunn and the surrounding communities than I have in a long time,” Mercer said. “This proves that our citizens care about our town and communities. It’s just wonderful to see people come together — it puts a smile on my face.”
More centennial events are planned. September will include a “facelift” for the bypass, says Mercer. A homecoming parade will have a centennial theme in October and a food drive will be held in November.
December’s celebration will include the lighting of the Christmas tree with events continuing through March 2014.
