Coral to celebrate 150 years

The town of Coral was founded in 1862 during Civil War days, and will be celebrating its 150th birthday this year. The Coral Days Festival Committee has been working hard to mark this special occasion with a celebration during the annual Coral Days Festival, June 22-23. The committee has been raising funds to add some historical flavor to the celebration. They will open a time capsule buried in 1962 to begin the Friday night events. A room will also be set up with memorabilia from the old days of Coral. If anyone has antique or historical items or photos that they want to loan to the committee for those two days, they may contact Kathy Gunderman at 231-354-6431 (Coral Power Shop).

There will also be an old-fashioned bucket brigade race and a soap box derby. The committee is also hoping to have some ancient cars and tractors on display. There will be the usual car show and firemen’s water ball and a host of other activities to enjoy as well. Crafters interested in renting a table or businesses interested in getting in the souvenir book should call Kathy at the above phone number.
