On Saturday, April 19, 2003, Susquehanna Depot Borough celebrated its 150th, or Sesquicentennial, birthday. American Legion Post 86s Honor Guard began the proceedings by raising the flag in front of the boro building. After the flag raising, the ceremony continued inside, in the council room.
Mary Jo Glover, Chair of the Sesquicentennial Commitee welcomed all, and introduced Rachel Ackley, who sang the Star Spangled Banner.
Several hundred Susquehanna area residents gathered on the evening of April 19, in the Shops Plaza, to show support for our military personnel, whether they be stateside or overseas. Yellow ribbons adorned the trees surrounding the Veterans Service Board as well as the clothing of many of the attendees. Items to be sent to troops serving in the Iraq war were collected, as well as monetary donations to pay for shipping.
