They'll be dedicating the Gail Holliday poster trees, located along Lake Kittamaqundi in the Kennedy Gardens. From Barbara Kellner of the Columbia Archives:
On Sunday, Oct 1 starting at 5 pm there will be special celebration of Columbia's 50th. Starting at the Kennedy Gardens, on the path around Lake Kittamaqundi, with a dedication of the newly-installed restored poster trees that once graced Wincopin Circle. The fete continues at the lakefront with performances by Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, Misako Ballet Company, Columbia Orchestra and Columbia's own Zach Brown. Please join me as Columbia's celebration of the 50th birthday draws to a close.
Weather for Sunday is likely to be mostly sunny, with a high of 70. Perfect weather for a walk around the Lake and some family fun at the Lakefront. It's all free.
A tip of the hat to everyone who has worked on the Columbia 50th celebrations! After this weekend you can put your feet up and think about all the happy memories you created for our community.
