The Centennial Committee met Sunday to discuss further plans for the celebration to be held July 3rd and 4th. The event commences with an all-school banquet on the 3rd followed by a dance.
On the 4th, activities kick-off at noon with a parade which promises to be a special one.

Planning the traditional old time celebration, the committee assures us that many fun events will happen to keep everyone of all ages enjoying themselves all afternoon.

There is an alumni basketball tournament to be held with surrounding towns invited to participate. It will be held in the community hall which will be cooled! Bingo will be played in the cool fire hall, and plans for a youth basketball game and races in Main Street are being made.
There will be a barbeque beginning at 6 pm (no buttons to buy). At 8pm there is a program scheduled at the park, followed by fire works, weather permitting.

A centennial quilt designed and sewed by Julie Larson and crew will be awarded to the lucky raffle winner. On the 4th everything is free except for some food and drink booths.

The Vivian Centennial Committee will have a booth at the Presho Farm & Home Show Feb. 25th where they will sell Centennial shirts, buttons, raffle tickets, and other items. Lonis Wendt will have a History of Vivian book which he has complied.

The next meeting will be March 13th at the hall, anyone is welcome to attend and share their ideas.

National Girls & Women In Sports Day (NGWSD) is a special day for girls and women to celebrate their participation in sports and athletics. When Title IX was enacted in 1971, 1 in 27 girls in high school participated in athletics. One in three girls participates in athletics in high school now! There has been an explosion in the number of athletic opportunities open to women and girls of all ages and levels of ability.
