Scranton sesqui committee looking for help

The committee planning the Scranton’s sesquicentennial celebration for 2019 is looking for help.

Carol Eason reported the committee’s activities at the Scranton city council meeting Aug. 8. Many Scranton residents attended the Glidden sesqui celebration earlier this month and were impressed with that committee’s ideas and organization, Eason said.

Activities suggested for the Scranton event include human foosball, a parade, a water fight, a historical scavenger hunt, a historical fashion show, dinner theatre and more.

A garage sale is planned later this month as a fundraiser, and the committee is exploring hosting BINGO starting this fall.

“We just need help” stressed Eason. The committee is using social media and will be writing letters to corporate sponsors seeking volunteers and funding.

Although the event is 22 months out, the committee wants to make the celebration memorable.  ~The Scranton Journal
