Special Events & Family Histories Needed for 125th Commemorative Book
Our Centennial, as in prior Anniversary volumes, contained descriptions of the families in Ladd as submitted by its citizens. We will continue this custom by having a section devoted to brief narratives of current Ladd families in the 125th Commemorative Volume. Please write a description of your family highlighting significant aspects such as education, employment, marriage, children and grandchildren and include a photograph. Deliver your written narrative to the Ladd Public Library or, if in electronic form, email to email@example.com to be included in the 125th Anniversary Volume. Residents are also encouraged to submit a special event for one of the last 25 years (1990-2015). The committee is looking for something important that has happened and the year that it took place. For example, 2008: Matt Hassler wins the Class A State High Jump Championship. Email your submission by July 31st to firstname.lastname@example.org. To reserve a copy of the Commemorative Book, visit the Village Clerk’s office.
