Littlestown Bicentennial
1765/1965

THE LITTLESTOWN BICENTENNIAL idea was conceived in the minds of the directors of the Littlestown Chamber of Commerce in 1962. A general chairman was appointed in the person of Melvin L. Houston, proprietor of Houston's Grocery Store, 25 South Queen Street.

Melvin did not live to see his dream come true, but someone among the 'powers that be' was lending a great deal of assistance throughout the planning and staging of the Bicentennial Celebration and we like to think that Mel Houston was using his influence 'up there' on our behalf.

The Celebration was planned for August 1 trough August 7, 1965.

Appropriately, with the Chamber as the guiding organization for the Bicentennial Celebration, the actual kick-off took place in conjunction with the annual Chamber of Commerce banquet on May 12, 1965 in St Aloysius Catholic Hall.
