(JACKSON) The Town of Jackson this year celebrates its centennial year with a variety of events either planned or currently in the planning stages. The kick-off event, says Centennial Committee Chairman Ed Liebzeit takes place this evening beginning 5:00 pm at the Wort Hotel which offers an opportunity for community members to share stores and reminisce about the town’s earlier years. He explains primarily, it is the beginning of the celebration, and they will also take a few minutes to unveil some of the things that are planned going forward. Liebzeit says there are activities in the making throughout the rest of the year including parades, a community picnic, and a gala September 20th – the day the town was incorporated. He says the committee would very much like to hear everyone’s ideas. He says suggestions may be submitted to either to him or to Maureen Murphy at the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Liebzeit says, “We want to identify any and all residents in the valley who have been here for 75 years or more, and any business that has been in existence for fifty years or more.” Liebzeit says the committee is working with the historical society in putting together a photo and memorabilia presentation for the centennial, but he invites any residents who might have photos are items that may not be in the society’s collection to contact committee so that they may be shared during the event as well.
