Happy Birthday Plaza
By Edna Sailor
On July 20, 2014, the community of Plaza celebrated its 108th anniversary.
The Celebration actually began on July 19 with hometown musicians Harlan and Steve Helgeson providing music throughout the afternoon. Country Crossing Day Care provided hot dogs, inflatable bouncy castles and games for the young at heart. For those looking for less strenuous entertainment Bingo was available. And of course what celebration would be complete without ice cream and popcorn. The delicious treats were served by Makoti and Plaza High School Seniors Close Up group. Funds will be used for their Washington D.C. trip. A silent auction was held with everyone trying to score their favorite item. Proceeds will go toward a new roof for the mini-mall. Donations are welcomed for that as well.
The back seat driving contest provided more than its share of laughter for the day. A Honda Pioneer drawing was held early evening. A Wisconsin man was the winner. No name was disclosed. Proceeds will go toward a park pavilion. Donations will also be accepted for the project.
