REEDSPORT — In preparation for the City of Reedsport turning 100 years old, a year-long celebration is being planned.

According to a press release, Coastal Douglas Arts & Business Alliance is partnering with the City of Reedsport and its Main Street program to plan the celebration, though “the number and scope of the events and activities will depend on community members and the committee’s ability to obtain financial support.”

The public is being invited to become a “Centennial Centurion” by donating $100 or more to contribute to the anniversary celebration.

“Emily Bradley at city hall has more information on the various giving plans and sponsorship plans available,” the release said. “All donation amounts are greatly appreciated.”
