Rising Sun officially kicked off its Sequicentennial Celebration today with a ribbon cutting at the town hall and an open house in the museum. As brilliant April sunshine warmed the audience, the sense of an appreciation for the past was obvious as remarks by Mayor Cox and others indicated. The enthusiastic crowd that had gathered provided additional evidence that Rising Sun is a place that values its history, while it grows in the 21st century. Nearly two generations have passed since the town last held similiar activities 50 years ago on the centennial of the incorporation of the municipality. Congratulations to the town of Rising Sun for a great start in celebrating this milestone in 2010.
