150 Years of Baker Celebrated on Saturday

A full day of activities will celebrate the 150th anniversary of one of Florida's First Coast Counties tomorrow.  Baker County is celebrating its' Sesquicentennial Celebration on Saturday, September 24th.  I have been asked to serve as a Master of Ceremonies (MC) for the day.  The events will be centered around a historic area of the City of Macclenny, and will include a parade, demonstrations, arts & crafts, civil war re-enactors, historic displays in the old jail, art exhibit in the library, antique car show, a variety of music, historic tours, a fly-over by World War II P6’s, plenty of food, and much more!  Visit the celebration website for more information about the events.  You'll also find some historic photos from the county on the site and links to even more photos of the area and families from the past.
