Centennial celebration :;iill stands as one of the best in the state." said Geno Hutehins. chairm.m of the event, when asked yesterday by the Upper Des Monies "!iu\v a centennial chairman fecis a year later. It was just a year ago that thousand? ; ithered in Algonn In commemorate the first 100 years of life in Kossuth county. Now one year later. ex-Chairman Hutehins has the following comment.*: Favorable remarks have been heard many times on the Kossuth County Centennial; many other Imva towns sent representatives here to find out how a Centennial was urn. with 'the thought of patterning their own activities after K<>ssut!i's: the. "old re-unions" idea, established in the Kossuth County Centennial here last, vear has been one of the most copied, I'm last July literally thousands of old friends renewed their friendships, and the crowd.'.I churches and overflowing school reunions at the fairgrounds marked a high point of the Centennial. Ex-chairman Hutehins stated that the 218-umt Centennial pa; ado was one of tin: greatest in the state, before or since. The Centennial revue, staged at the fairgrounds, required the work of hundreds. ;;nd will be long remembered. "It was all staged and handled perfectly", commented Hulchin?, "and what's more, it was completely free of rowdyism. It was n grand way to mark a century of achievement in Kossuth Counly, and a bright promise for the future". The files of the Algona Upper Des Monies yielded some of ihe proof that Kossuth County really had a "Ceirk nnial" here last July, as shown below.
