Help our society celebrate the 200th birthday of Oakland County with this calendar, featuring images from the 1916 Centennial celebration!
Calendar – Front Cover
In 1916, Oakland County held a week-long celebration of its centennial (okay, they were a little early – the actual date is March 28, 1820), featuring a parade every day, speeches, proclamations, and all manner of 1916-style partying.
Calendar – January
Lillian Drake Avery, noted county historian and suffragist, assembled a very comprehensive scrapbook of the centennial week – we’ve chosen 12 of the most memorable images from the celebration to highlight the festivities.
And, for almost every day of the year, you can read about notable events in our county’s history.
We all receive calendars for free, but purchasing ours helps support your Society.
Calendars ordered and mailed through the website have a $1.50 mailing fee.You can also purchase the calendar on line, and pick it up at Pine Grove. Just bring your receipt.
