Crown King Historical Society’s Centennial Celebration 2012

Neither torrential rain or hail could put a damper on the Crown King Historical Society’s Centennial Celebration!

There was a record breaking crowd present to witness the unveiling of the CK Historical Society’s Historical Building Walking Tour. CKHS President, Margaret Henningsen, rolled out the Legacy Project on Sunday, Sept 2nd. The numerous volunteers worked hard to prepare for this event. The crape paper and decorations were pretty well ruined by the isolated heavy storm that blew through just an hour before the festivities were scheduled to start. In typical Crown King style, the volunteers rolled up their sleeves and threw one great party! Thomas Oliver Band provided entertainment while guests dined and bid on silent auction items.  County Supervisor, Tom Thurman, was on hand to help kick off the event. Thanks to all the many volunteers who helped set up, serve, clean up, host the museum and support the Historical Society throughout the year. Thanks also to our speakers and guests who made this event more successful than expected.  The final figures are not yet in, however Margaret says it appears that this event helped raise quite a lot of money for the CK Historical Society. Here are some photos taken at the celebration.
