Silver Celebration 1981

1 comment

I am old enough to remember this day. At the time my dad was helping organize this event. He gave me a coin and told me not to say anything about it. The idea was to have a person come up to me and ask if I had the Commemorative Coin and then I would say yes I am one of the mystery people who had a coin and then hand them the coin. Well, it was not all that grand, but you get the point. I went through the celebration not being asked by anyone, until the very end when a girl half my age, marched up to me and asked if I had the Commemorative Coin. I said yes and presented her with the coin. I have a sneaky feeling that I was given up by one of the town elders, but I can not prove that. Here are a few photos from that event.

If you have any more that you would like to add, please call the library.

I have added an advertisement from a 1984 Lee Town News newspaper. In big bold letters citizens of Pleasant Hill were encouraged to call their Councilmen and tell them to vote No! for the proposed gravel pit. I do not remember how that particular vote went, but eventually a gravel pit went in across from the proposed site. Another gravel pit was built a mile away on Hwy 163; it is now a central part of the Copper Creek neighborhood.

I have also uploaded a  picture  of the old city hall and fire station. I will be working on some photos from the Silver Anniversary celebration soon. If there is anything that you have that can be posted let us know. You can call the Pleasant Hill Library at 515.266.7815.

Thanks for stopping by,
