Celebrating the centennial

June 29, 2013


Citizen staff writer

Franklin County residents are invited to a birthday party for the county’s centennial on July 24th at Benson Park.


The fun begins with an opening ceremony at 1 p.m. The park will then be filled with free old fashioned games such as foot races and marble and jack tournaments, heritage activities and an alumni booth for anyone who ever taught or attended a class within the Oneida Stake Academy’s walls during the 113 years it was open. Anyone interested in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament should contact Elliott Larsen at 208-852-2328.

Sheet metal workers finish putting the louvers on the bell tower at the Oneida Stake Academy building last month.

Makers of pies are encouraged to enter the pie contest, which will be judged at the end of the opening ceremonies. An OSA Dutch oven and other prizes will be presented to the winner. To enter, please contact Sheyenne Hunsaker at 208-681-0308.
