Tyrone Centennial committee needs more family information


Linda Howard, Tyrone Centennial Committee Chair, has sent word that they are still trying to get out information on the need for family information.

You don’t have to have family going back to the 1800’s, even if you just moved here in 2011, the committee wants to include your family in the Tyrone Centennial Book. Please get your family information in by Aug. 20 in time for the book to be out in time for Christmas giving.

The book is expected to be $25.

The town of Tyrone officially began on Aug. 18, 1911 and a big celebration of that event will be on Aug. 20 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Shamrock Park.

Everything is free including food, games and entertainment.

Centennial T-shirts and Centennial pens are available at this time. The T-shirts are available at the Recreation Center or from committee members, and the pens are available from committee members only: Linda Howard, 770-487-4777, Nicole Roy, 770-329-6904, Tina Carroll, 770-631-7241, Chip Young, 770-778-1212, Heather Trompke, 404-429-3153, Sandy Dow, 678-416-3624, and Susie Matthews, 770-861-6070.
