Yet as the Meyersdale Centennial Committee noted in preparing for our borough’s 100th anniversary celebration in 1974, “The success of any project depends almost entirely on the cooperation of the Citizens of The Community if it is a community project.” A half century later, this still holds true.

Thus at this point many discussions revolve around integrating the upcoming 150th celebration into the things folks in Meyersdale normally do in the course of a year: the Maple Festival, Alumni Weekend, our Independence Day celebration, the County Fair, etc. Almost any organization or business can put a little #Meyersdale150th pomp into its typical activities during 2024!
