With a little more than three weeks to go until the registration deadline for the 2017 Celebration in Crosby, the majority of registrants are from out of town.
“I’m not surprised,” said Steering Committee Chair Cecile Wehrman. “The same thing happened during the 2004 Centennial.”
Eventually, however, registration for the city Centennial swelled to nearly 1,600 people and that possibility is weighing a little heavy on a group of committee members who have been meeting for over a year to plan events, arrange for food and entertainment, and get partners on board.
“We’d love to have a huge crowd,” said Wehrman, but a count is essential for the planning of two meals that are included in the 2017 registration fee.
