Eleanor Celebrates 80 Years

Great Music, Bonfire, Food, Pumpkin Painting

Hundreds of people filled Eleanor City Park, Saturday, October 10th, 2015 to celebrate the town’s 80th anniversary.

Weather cooperated but even the threat of rain couldn’t dampen the crowd’s high level of enthusiasm and spirit.

A barbershop group brought great music. The town provided free hot dogs, popcorn, and soda and other tasty treats.

Children painted hundreds of pumpkins, and a massive bonfire lit up the night.

Near the library, a set of plaques, “Eleanor: A History Of Hope” and “Homestead: Community And Opportunity” were dedicated to show bypassers some of the town’s heritage.

“We want to celebrate our heritage,” says Councilman Cam Cameron, “And look back on 80 years as we move forward towards our first century mark.”
