THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Pembine in 1908
Pembine to Mark Centennial Aug. 1-3
The Town of Pembine Centennial Committee has been working hard to make the celebration a memorable one on the weekend of Aug. 1-3. Many activities have been scheduled for the event, beginning with a street dance on Friday night followed by fireworks. The annual Community picnic with horse pulls, raffles, and activities for the kids is Saturday, along with a display of old pictures and memorabilia, an all-class reunion, a lumberjack show, crafters, and a display of old cars and tractors. The centennial celebration will be wrapped up on Sunday with a pancake breakfast and a huge parade.
One of the biggest projects for the Centennial is a book of Pembines history. A family history can be included in the book, but it must be submitted before March 1 to: Christ McLain, N17770 Twin Lake Road, Dunbar, WI 54119 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Book sponsorship donations are also being accepted to help meet the projects financial goal. In order to have a name or in memory of a loved one listed in the book donation must also be received before March 1 to Town of Pembine, Sheri Stepein, Town Clerk/Treasurer, W7837 Cemetery Rd., Pembine, WI 54156. Contact Sheri at 715-324-5261 or email@example.com with any questions or to volunteer to help with the celebration.
