Committee lauded for great 150th birthday observance

If you missed Saturday’s Sesquicentennial, you missed a really good time.

Granted it was scorching hot, but there was so much to do and see and it basically went off flawlessly thanks to a lot of hard work from the Baker County Historical Society and the event committee.

Chairman Larry Rosenblatt and his committee are to be congratulated for a job well done. To the casual observer, it seemed to go off without a hitch and everyone seemed to have a really good time. I’m sure Larry and his crew of volunteers were on pins and needles the whole time. I hope they got a chance to enjoy themselves a little.

There was plenty to be proud of in the celebration and I think that a lot of people left the festivities glad that they live in Baker County. I know I did.

It kicked off with a wonderful parade that truly was a cross-section of what the county is all about.

The opening ceremony was stirring, with one of the best flyovers I’ve ever seen, from WWII-era T6 trainers. As the flyover went by there was a stirring version of the National Anthem from Sara Beth Gerard and God Bless America from Marcelle and Bethany Richardson and a release of red, white and blue balloons against the cloudless sky.
