Join us for an informational meeting on November 19 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers to learn about volunteer opportunities with the Tonganoxie Sesquicentennial Planning Committee.

A celebration of Tonganoxie's 150th anniversary will be celebrated on June 10-11, 2016. The current vision for this celebration includes historical exhibits, a BBQ contest, kid's activities, vendors, food and beverages, live entertainment, a car show and other activities.

A committee formed by the City Council is looking for volunteers interested in helping with the planning of this event. Volunteers will be needed for everything from suggesting ideas to coordinating activities, to organizing and planning to working during the festival. There are opportunities in several categories, including:

  • Marketing and promotion

  • Community involvement/activities
  • Vendor coordination
  • Mapping and logistics
