Alliance begins 125th anniversary celebration


Alliance marks the 125th anniversary of its founding this year, and is beginning the celebration tonight (Jan 26) with dinner-dance titled Stetsons, Stilettos, and Steam Engines.

Box Butte Development Corporation executive director Chelsie Herian says the first formal event of the Quasquicentennial is being held now because this weekend is the anniversary of...in a very true sense...when the city of Alliance came into existence.

Herian says planning for the 125th celebration has been going on for some time, thanks to a good group of hard-working volunteers.
Herian emphasizes that Stetsons, Stilettos, and Steam Engines is just the first many Alliance Quasquicentennial events that will be held this year.

Herian says over 100 tickets have been sold for tomorrow's dinner-dance at Newberry's...which begins with a social hour at 6:00, dinner at 7:00, entertainment and the "Unsung Hero" at 8:00, and dancing with Complete Music from 9-till-midnight.
