100 Year Anniversary Celebration

Join us for a week of celebration.

In 1911, William Howard Taft was President of the United States. Vincent Price, American film actor, was born. World War I was still three years in the future. Women legally could not vote. Songs such as "I Want a Girl Just Like the Girl that Married Dear Old Dad" and "Down By the Old Mill Stream" were the hits. Movies were all silent films. You could buy a Ford Model T for as low as $650. And the Osceola Public Library was dedicated.
That's right - it's been 100 years that we have been working to serve the needs of our community. That calls for a celebration. We have designated the week of June 20-25 for a 100 Year Anniversary FULL of fun activities for the young and old alike.
