Town of Portland birthday to begin with Kick Off Dinner April 13

BROCTON – With great pleasure, months of planning and a surge of mo-mentum going into the spring and summer months, the Portland Bicen-tennial Committee proudly announces its official Celebration Kick Off Dinner to be held April 13 at the John W. Dill American Legion Post in Brocton, located at 110 W. Main St.

The Celebration Kick Off Dinner will serve as the official start of the Town of Portland’s 200th birthday extravaganza. A limited number of tickets have been made available for the historic event, which will feature a brief showcase of history of its own.

The cost is $20 per ticket and tickets are available at the Portland Town Hall, the Ahira Hall Memorial Library in Brocton or from any committee members.

Featured will be a buffet style dinner, hors d’ouevres, a cash bar and a door prize giveaway. The social hour will begin at 5 p.m. and the dinner will begin at 6 p.m.

Local town, county and village elected officials have been invited to attend and launch the Town’s 200th birthday celebration. Diners will not only enjoy a generous meal, but a re-enactment of the first official town meeting by elected officials.

Town and village residents should also stay tuned for more upcoming events which will lead to the celebration’s culmination July 12-14.
