The Conrad Centennial Committee (CC) gathered together well before the city celebrated its’ 100th anniversary last year and had events going on right up to the day of the “Big Clock” unveiling on Main St. which drew well over 1,000 folks.
Through their continued efforts it seemed everyone caught the centennial spirit and helped Conrad welcome in a start on another 100 years.
Marla Bruner, chairman of the committee, commented, “Seeing all the people at every event made all the months of planning worthwhile. We honored the past; celebrated the present and embraced the future.”
