sought for 150th
The City of Cottonwood will note itís 150th year in 2012 and the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce is seeking ideas on just how to celebrate it.
The first white settlers buildings went up in what is now Cottonwood in 1862 with the town being named after Cottonwood Creek, which flows through town. Indirectly the town was named after the Cottonwood trees for which Cottonwood Creek was named.
Contact Cheri Holthaus or the Cottonwood Chronicle if you have some ideas or would like to coordinate a celebration.
The Chamber will also be sponsoring the BLM river cleanup which is set for Saturday, August 13. Space is limited to 22 people for the raft trip. Contact Joe OíNeill at the BLM. The trip puts in at Hammer Creek and ends at Pine Bar.
The Chamber also okayed a donation to the Summer Reading Program at the Library.
In the Library report it was noted the business receipt program went well as they were able to award 17 free library memberships. Their annual Brats and Brew fest is set for Oct. 15.
The next meeting of the Chamber is set for Thursday, July 14 at 11:30 a.m. at the Library.
