Rainelle prepares for 100th anniversary, asks for help

RAINELLE, W. Va (WVVA)-- Rainelle's 100th Anniversary Celebration is fast approaching.

The event is scheduled for April 25-29, 2013. The Celebration Committee has been planning since last year, but they ask for more help.

"We desperately need everybody's ideas, and even volunteers to work the event," said mayor Andrea Pendleton.

So far, loose celebration plans include an opening ceremony as well as potentially an antique car show, parade, muzzle loader and archery competitions, and a Rainelle Centennial Idol singing competition. Although none of these are set in stone, Mayor Pendleton said she has great expectations for the event.

The committee will continue to have meetings to develop and finalize plans up until the celebration.

For further information you are asked to email Rainelle Community Development Corporation's President, Joan Browning, at oma00013@wvnet.edu or call 304-645-6799 if you are interested in being a part of the planning process.
