THE SESQUICENTENNIAL ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEES The 1996 Mt. Vernon Sesquicentennial Celebration promises to be a memorable event. Many community residents have volunteered their time to organize all of the events that will take place in Mt. Vernon on the weekend of October 4th, 5th and 6th. Ben Goebler is the chairman of the celebration, with Guy Austin, co-chairman; Len Marty, treasurer and Kathy Sies, secretary. Sweatshits, T-shirts, caps and buttons were designed by David Trainor, and are being sold by Vi Ryan. This 150 year historical book was put together with the combined efforts of Walter and Ruth Brink, Tim and Karen White, Jennifer Goebler, Kathy Sies and Brian Bigler. Many residents of Mt. Vernon contributed articles and pho- tographs for the project. Harland and Nona Erfurth are the parade chairpersons, and Audrey Marty and Julie Stapelmann are in charge of the kid's parade. Darleen Goebler, Rick Skindrud and Craig Judd are in charge of entertainment. Bill Ryan, Ed Sies and Herb Bircher will be the park superintendents, and Gerald Trainor will supervise parking. Florence Buetler and Doug and Gail Dahlk will arrange the Zwingli church activities, and Joleen Elsing is the artist preparing posters and float decorations. Earl Garfoot and Karl Hacker, Primrose and Springdale township supervisors, are arranging for the permits and insurance needed for all of the weekend events, and Ray Gilden, Jerry Lehnherr, Craig Judd, and Pete Way are recruiting members of their clubs to help out.
